MILWAUKEE (AP) - A bat caused some anxious moments during Saturday's game between Providence and Marquette, sending coaches, players and referees scrambling and delaying the game on a number of occasions.
The bat first appeared with about 11 minutes left, as it began flying near the court and circling over the crowd. At several points, it swooped near the court, sending referees and players scrambling - while the original ``Batman'' theme played on the loudspeaker.
The game resumed following an initial 4-minute delay, but play was stopped again seconds later as the bat nearly flew into the side of Providence center Sidiki Johnson's head, sending him to the court.
The bat continued to circle the court for the next few minutes. At one point, Providence coach Ed Cooley menacingly held up his clipboard waiting to swat it out of the air, and Marquette's Jamil Wilson threw a towel in the air trying to trap it.
