‘Disgusting’: College basketball player suspended for flooring rival with brutal elbow

‘Disgusting’: College basketball player suspended for flooring rival with brutal elbow

Tenaglia falls to the ground, Platt keeps it moving, and the referees were somehow oblivious to the entire incident.

"The MASCAC and Fitchburg State University take this incident very seriously".

The school has yet to speak out on the incident.

"He has been indefinitely suspended from the team and barred from campus. Fitchburg State does not tolerate behavior that violates those standards", the school tweeted. There didn't appear to be any contact between the two players until Tenaglia made his attempt from 3-point range.

Tenaglia finished will 11 points in the win. 'We are aware that the Fitchburg State administration is handling the matter'.

On Wednesday, Fitchburg State released a statement on Twitter condemning Platt's unsportsman-like conduct and announcing his indefinite suspension exclusion from campus.




Kewan Platt, who attends Fitchburg State University in MA, could face assault charges after landing a running elbow to an opponent this week. As the freshman from Tewksbury watched his shot, Platt, who had been heading out to guard him, glanced back at the nearest referee, who was looking toward the hoop.

Representatives of the Nichols College Bison confirmed that Tenaglia had avoided serious injury and was able to finish the game, adding that they would continue to monitor his health. "We're happy it didn't escalate into a brawl".

Platt was recently honored with the Conference Player of the Week Award.

Fitchburg State campus police are assisting the university with an investigation.

"His behavior goes against the MASCAC's mission which includes good sportsmanship", Baumann said.
