Playboy model Megan Dills will miss her next photo shoot because of ankle injuries she suffered after Indiana Hoosiers basketball fans stormed the court after their team's upset win over the Kentucky Wildcats in Bloomington, Ind. on Saturday.
Dills, who described herself as a diehard Kentucky fan to the Kentucky fan Web site VaughtsViews.com, was surrounded by a frenzy of Hoosier fans as they rushed the court after Indiana junior Christian Watford hit a three-point buzzer-beater to upset their longtime rival Kentucky Wildcats, who were number one in the nation at the time, 73-72.
All those fans came out of their seats and rushed the floor like idiots, said Dills to VaughtsViews.com. 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.
Dills, who first posed for Playboy's Girls of the SEC spread in 2007, said she had a swollen ankle and torn tendons after the postgame celebration, which meant that she would be unable to participate in an upcoming Playboy shoot that scheduled for this Saturday.
I just can't do the shoot with my ankle like it is, Dills said. But that's OK because I do a lot of them.
The model also spoke more broadly of the Indiana students' response in the wake of the Wildcats' shocking defeat.
What happened up there would never happen at Kentucky, Dills said. They were so distasteful and not very sportsmanlike. You would have thought they won the national championship. Besides, if Kentucky had played to half of its potential, IU would be singing another song today.
Indiana's win was regarded as a major turning point for a storied program that has struggled to get over the hump in recent years. The Hoosiers elevated to a No. 18 rank with the win, while the Wildcats fell from top team in the land to No. 3.
