There are no immediate details as to what started the fight, but at least one player threw a punch, as seen in the image after the jump.

Ed. note: Further video evidence has shown that Southern Miss forward Torye Pelham threw a punch at Ruslan Pateev's face, while the animated gif below only shows the retaliatory punch. Full video at the bottom.

The players mentioned in the tweet are Ruslan Pateev, a center from ASU and Torye Pelham, a forward from Southern Miss.

If the above image is any indication, this could potentially turn into an ugly PR issue for Arizona State. Stay tuned to SB Nation Arizona as we will provide more details when possible.
