Women’s Basketball Brawl! Three Ejected After Fight During Auburn-Alabama Game (Video)
If you thought the Auburn-Alabama rivalry was just on the gridiron, think again. Every single athlete at those two schools is a part of it.
The women’s basketball brawl during Thursday night’s Auburn-Alabama game is a testament to that.
With 1:14 left in the first half and the Crimson Tide up 28-15, Breanna Hayden got tangled up with the Tigers’ Hasina Muhammad under the basket while jockeying for position after a free throw. Hayden lost her cool and just cocked Muhammad in the face, which in turn set Muhammad on the war path. She eventually got to Hayden, who had retreated back to her team’s bench, and punched her back. However, in the process she knocked over a referee, which never goes over well.
Take a look. It’s pretty wild:
After the melee settled down, the officiating crew gathered, compared notes, and ejected both Hayden and Muhammed, plus another Alabama player who left the bench. And you’d have to think at least Hayden will see further discipline from Alabama. She is the one who started the whole thing, after all.
As for the rest of the game, in case you were wondering, Alabama held on to win 51-50.
It should be fun the next time these teams get together.
