LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ University of Kansas athletic officials are considering changes to Late Night in the Phog after complaints about a lack of crowd control at the event last Friday.

The Late Night festivities mark the official beginning of the basketball season and fans typically line up for hours before it starts.

Associate athletic director Jim Marchiony says KU Athletics plans to discuss changes that might be needed to control crowds as they wait to be allowed into the free event.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/17budwZ ) fans complained about frequent cutting in line and a mob rushing the entrance when the doors opened Friday. Between 3,000 and 5,000 fans were turned away. Others reported fights broke out and no one from the university was providing security or crowd control.
