Alabama High School Basketball Is Rough

Wednesday, February 18, 2009

A crazy fight broke out during a Basketball game, actually scratch that, an all out brawl broke out in Alabama last night. Now normally when two teams go at it, it can be pretty intense, but when you add in thousands of angry fans, it gets a little bit crazier....

Man, that was crazy. Both Schools, Carver and Valley, have since met with the board and are awaiting word, but with Carver leading the game 52-37 and a Valley player starting the melee, it seems pretty clear that Carver will get the win. Good times, Alabama....Gooood times.

I agree with the SbB article, none of these teams should be awarded a victory. Just give the team that was to face one of these 2 teams a bye in the next round.

However, if rules insist that a victor must be awarded, there is no way it's not Carver because as was mentioned, they were winning and the Valley player started this melee.

As far as the actual fight, itself, man, that was an intense fight. Good grief. And the icing on the cake is that once the players had left the court and things appeared to be calming down, it started up again between the fans. Hopefully no one was seriously hurt in the fight, especially seeing as there were some nasty shots handed out and some nasty falls at the end in the stands.

Before even watching the video how did I know the teams and fans would be black?

This is nothing compared to Valley's rivalry with Bayside.

The Birmingham News is reporting that the Alabama High School Athletic Association has kicked both schools out of the playoffs and Talladega High will get a bye in the next round. Bravo to the AHSAA for making the right decision.
