Suspensions Follow High School Basketball Fight

Jason Scott Headshot

Discipline has been handed down in the wake of an on-court melee that broke out late during a Friday evening basketball game between Muskegon Heights Academy and Orchard View High School in Michigan. 

In all, ten players — five from each school — were suspended for one game apiece after a fight broke out late in the third quarter between the two boys’ basketball programs. 

According to Orchard View AD Leroy Hackley, it all started with a hard foul. Hackley told that an OV player was knocked to the floor, and that the situation escalated. No punches were thrown according to Hackley, but some chest bumping occurred and players left the bench.
