Big brawl at Bajan basketball game

(Barbados Nation) Fists flew again. Now local basketball has itself another black eye.

First Works Warriors and Nicholls Baking Company Cougars are certain to face one of the biggest multiple-player suspensions in recent Premier League history after an all-out brawl that saw both benches cleared in Saturday’s night cap at the Wildey Gym.

It was the unsightly end to what was otherwise an enthralling encounter – the second time in 11 months a basketball game had ended prematurely due to a fracas, following last May’s now infamous UWI brawl.

And this coming in a contest that didn’t want for drama, with the game swinging back and forth before Warriors took a 68-62 lead with 2:38 remaining on a Corey McDonald three-pointer.

Apparently, it wasn’t the night’s last big blow.
