Yeah, that happened.
Today's game between Providence and Marquette was brought to a halt repeatedly in the second half because a bat was fascinated by what was happening on the court. Here's PC's Sidiki Johnson avoiding attack, via Gifulmation:
How about video of the players attempting to ensare the bat in a towel, as shot by someone in the upper deck?
How about Providence head coach Ed Cooley, via 30FPS?
That's not even the best thing that Cooley did, as he took refuge behind one of the referees at one point.
And of course, Twitter reaction:
Marquette is the only team in the nation with a condensation and bat delay in one season #mubb— Charlie Houser (@ChucklesBitMe) January 26, 2013
That was one of the strangest things I've seen in 375 years. #mubb— Father Marquette (@FatherMarquette) January 26, 2013

The bat has money on Providence.— Raphielle Johnson (@raphiellej) January 26, 2013
