Fitchburg State basketball player suspended for elbowing opponent in the face

A Division III game in Massachusetts was marred by a vicious cheap shot better suited for the WWE than basketball. More

Kewan Platt, a junior guard who was recently named the men's basketball player of the week for the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference, was caught on video violently elbowing Nichols College's Nate Tenaglia during the final minutes of Nichols' 84-75 win. On Wednesday afternoon, the school released a statement saying that Platt has been indefinitely suspended from the team and barred from campus, adding that it is "appalled" by his conduct. Fitchburg State's previous possession ended with Platt attempting an ill-advised step-back 3-pointer that sailed several feet over the rim, perhaps leaving him frustrated enough to make a poor decision seconds later.

Platt, a criminal justice major, is seen walking away as Tengalia is writhing on the floor in pain. A referee who saw the play issued a technical foul and ejected Platt from the game.

Kewan Platt, who attends Fitchburg State University in MA, could face assault charges after landing a running elbow to an opponent this week.

Matthew Bruun, the university's director of public information, told ESPN that the Fitchburg State University police department is "fact-finding" and reviewing the incident from Tuesday night. "The case is being reviewed at the student conduct level for consideration of further sanctions", the university said in its statement.

'The MASCAC has also vacated his player of the week award.

A Fitchburg State basketball player has been suspended after knocking an opposing Nichols College player to the ground with a nasty elbow shot.

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