Basketball Teams Get into Massive Brawl After Fan Shoves Coach

Jonathan Wall, Yahoo! Sports, December 26, 2011

We’ve highlighted a couple of nasty high school brawls this year on Prep Rally, but the one that occurred between Baltimore’s ConneXions School for the Arts and Washington, D.C.’s Cardozo Academy could top them all.

As Fox-5 in Washington, D.C. and other local outlets reported, a Wednesday night game between ConneXions and Cardozo Academy got out of hand after a couple of questionable calls by the referees started to anger fans in the stands during the second quarter.

With tensions mounting and the game on the verge of going south, an unknown fan came out of the stands and shoved a Cardozo coach, igniting a nasty brawl that lasted for more than a couple minutes.

All in all, it was a black-eye moment that both schools will not soon forget.
