This is as bad as I've seen. This kid's college career should be done. Nichols College v. Fitchburg State

Not only should his college career be over, but he should be arrested too.

I love how he clearly turns to see if the ref is paying attention and then levels the kid.

Most likely the shooter said something truly inflammatory to the kid before this, but that's no excuse.

Pretty bad. Maybe the worst. Wouldn't be surprised if they press charges but I'm of the opinion that just about anything short of murder that happens on a field of play shouldn't be prosecuted.

But that said, that's a really bad play.

That was an incredibly dangerous act, let alone cheap and dirty. He is jogging forward and delivers a full elbow while the opponent is in a defenseless position. That could literally kill someone. The kid who got hit apparently continued playing, hopefully they check him for concussion symptoms.

And Platt should be expelled and charged with assault. Honestly that would be getting off lightly.

According to the internet sleuths over on Reddit:

Kewan Platt, current conference player of the week, and this is believed to be his dad.

And you can see the full play here (and the whole game if you really wanted), play happens at 2:01:58.  Watching a few minutes before to see if there's any chippyness, there's a play about 1:55:12 where it looks like Platt inadvertently elbows Tenaglia after a dunk, but besides that don't notice anything.  Tenaglia also gets floored by a pick around 2:00:41 (but not by Platt).  Platt actually seemed to be playing great too, leading his team's comeback attempt.


Play seemed to be in full view of another ref too, who initially just called a regular foul.

Horrible.  That kid should be kicked off the team, kicked out of FSU and charged with assault & battery.

I don't know if the kid who got hit 'deserved it' by saying something horrendous in some earlier moment of the game or not or if there is some other history between the two, but that kind of info is for the judge to hear in mitigation.   There is absolutely no place for that kind of violence on the basketball court and shouldn't be any place for it in society in general.

I can't really quantify if that's the very dirtiest or not (the foreign player flat knocking out the ref springs to mind) but it's incredibly dirty and dangerous by any measure.

I agree with people who say the nature of the hit probably rises to not just a huge basketball penalty but a criminal prosecution too.

The kid's own coach should have taken him off the court, told the kid to take off his jersey, then go to the locker room with the assistant coach and change because he isn't on the team anymore.

Seconded. That was truly despicable.

The Pistons, late 80's early 90's, were the worst I've see. Robert Parish just beat Lambeer into the ground finally. Just cheap shots over and over. Johnny Most was calling Lambeer and Machorn, Mcdirty and McNasty.

It was "McFilthy and McNasty," I believe.
