Two Indiana High School Girls Basketball Seasons Canceled After Brawl [VIDEO]
The Indiana High School Athletic Association canceled the rest of the season for two varsity high school girls basketball teams after a fight that broke out this past weekend. Ben Davis and Pike High Schools were playing a girls varsity basketball game Saturday afternoon when the incident took place in the fourth quarter. The fight turned ugly fast, and soon the benches cleared and fans started to pour out onto the court. In addition to canceling the rest of the 2015-16 regular season and postseason, the IHSAA also handed down these sanctions:
- Each basketball coach (paid and voluntary) from both schools shall complete the Teaching and Modeling Behavior course available on the NFHSLearn.com website.
- Each student‐athlete, varsity or junior varsity present at this contest from both schools shall complete the Sportsmanship course found on the NFHSLearn.com website.
- Both school’s girls basketball teams shall be placed on probation for the entire 2016‐17 school year.
In other words ladies, don't mess with the IHSAA.
