Three players were ejected after a fight broke out at the women’s basketball game.
With less than two minutes left in the first half and Alabama leading 28-15, Auburn’s Hasina Muhammad and Alabama’s Breanna Hayden got tangled up going for a rebound off a free throw. Hayden is then seen throwing a punch and hitting Muhammad in the face on a video replay.The fight got so intense that it spilled into the Auburn bench and an official was also knocked to the floor as she tries to break the two up.
Both players were ejected out of the game. Meoshonti Knight of Alabama was also ejected for leaving the bench.
According to ESPN, Hayden seemed sorry for her actions. “I have no idea what completely happened, but BreBre (Hayden) apologized to her team immediately after that and knew that she had made a mistake,” Alabama coach Kristy Curry said. “So again, I’ll have to go back and evaluate.”
The Auburn coach Terri Williams-Flournoy also had her comments on what happened and she wasn’t too happy.
“You’re always disappointed in situations like that,” she said. “You never want to see either player from either side ejected from the game. This is the game that they love, the game that they practice to play, and so you never want that to happen.”
Alabama goes on to defeat Auburn in a very close 51-50 win.
