HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. -- Bryan McEldowney said he's never encountered a situation like what happened Friday night.

Two people appear to have walked off with a chair after Northern Kentucky University beat Illinois-Chicago, reaching the 20-win milestone for the first time since 2011-12.

Norse men's basketball coach John Brannen uses the chair during timeouts, and McEldowney, NKU's assistant athletic director, said it doesn't have any real significance.

Still, he said the staff was feeling frustrated.

NKU's basketball tweeted out a video of the incident:

If you know these folks, you might want to give NKU's Athletics Department a call at 859-572-5193.
