All hell broke loose during a Southwestern Athletic Conference women's basketball game featuring Southern and Texas Southern. The brawl took place with a little over 12 minutes left to play in the second half. This fight was like something out of the movie Slap Shot and featured sucker punches, cheerleaders, coaches and fans.

Fifteen players were suspended and one player from Southern was kicked off the team altogether. Texas Southern, which suspended eight players, was slated to be the top seed in the SWAC tournament, but withdrew due to not being able to field a full team.
