Megan Dills is a graduate of Kentucky and a die-hard Wildcats fan. She was also featured in the 2007 Girls of the SEC edition of Playboy. She was in Bloomington for Indiana’s memorable 73-72 win over Kentucky, and after Christian Watford hit the game-winning shot, fans rushed the court and Dills was knocked down a few steps and injured her ankle (torn tendons!). She had to cancel a photo shoot with Playboy. For a Kentucky fan, the atmosphere was a little much.
“You couldn’t hear yourself think, much less scream for UK,” she said. “There was a girl two rows behind me that said, ‘Sit your blonde — down.’ I turned around and probably said some not so nice things myself back. But it was a good time, or at least it was until the end.”
“All those fans came out of their seats and rushed the floor like idiots. The next thing I knew, I was knocked down five or six steps. I think the guy who actually knocked me down is the one who did at least pick me up. After I got hurt, I was scared to death.”
She had a swollen ankle she could barely walk on and a doctor confirmed Monday that she not only had a sprained ankle, but also some torn tendons. The injury has forced her to cancel a Playboy photo shoot this Saturday in Indiana.
Let this be a warning, Ashley Judd – might want to beef up security at all home and away games – never know when thousands of screaming fans are going to try and decleat an actress – Costanza-style – while rushing the floor.
