Representatives from Southern and Texas Southern are currently still assessing the in-game brawl between the teams Saturday that led to a double-forfeit in a contest that was billed to decide the regular season championship.
The brawl, which took place with Southern leading 51-49 with 12:36 left in regulation, involved players from both teams, cheerleaders and even fans.
The game was called as a result of the escalating scuffle, giving Southern and Texas Southern a share of the conference title.
Texas Southern, however, will enter the SWAC Tournament as the No. 1 seed.
“It was very undisciplined by both teams and fans on the sideline,” TSU Coach Johnette Hayes-Perry said. “I thought after the charge both players were trying to get up, but another player pushed them and that is all I could see.”
Any penalties or suspensions resulting from the altercation will be announced by the SWAC prior to the start of the conference tournament.
