Matters getting heated at Staples Center

OK, so with 13:43 left and Washington trying to make a run, things get testy as Arizona State's James Harden gets into an altercation with Washington's Venoy Overton.

Here's what went down: Harden scored a bucket over UW's Jon Brockman and Brockman was called for a block. As Harden's teammates went to congratulate him, he walked from the group and gave a shove to Overton, who fell backward. Overton, a tough player from Seattle's Franklin High School, grabbed Harden's jersey and Harden fell forward over Overton. Arizona State's Derek Glasser when walked over Overton and stood over him while he was lying on the ground.

Quincy Pondexter got into the face of Harden and coach Lorenzo Romar had to run out on the court to separate the parties. After a few minutes of delay, Harden, Glasser and Overton were assessed technicals.

After all the free throws, Arizona State leads 48-36 with 13:43 left.
