RENO, Nev. (AP) -- The student body president of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas says there are no hard feelings after he was ejected from Saturday's basketball game at rival Nevada.

Mark Ciavola is a 39-year-old political science major at UNLV as well as the campaign manager for Nevada Republican Congressman Joe Heck.

He tells the Reno-Gazette Journal he thinks some UNR fans should have been ejected too during the confrontation near the UNR student section at the Lawlor Events Center.

But he says that when all was said and done, he congratulated Wolf Pack fans as they exited the building following Nevada's 76-72 victory. He says the conflict was just a matter of "fans being fans."
