Meanwhile, Jackson State’s Dontelius Ross appeared to take exception to either harsh words or an incidental shoulder bump from Prairie View’s Darius Williams during the handshake line. Ross lunged for Williams only to be restrained by teammates and a police officer.
ESPN broadcasters said Jackson State guard Khalil Spencer was the instigator. Fights broke out all over the court as coaches tried to intervene.
And as you might expect, suspensions were handed out quickly.
Hope this means a lesson was learned. Did you see the brawl? What did you think? Should HBCU students be held to a higher standard given the years of scholarship and history they represent?
