The heated Alabama-Auburn rivalry never sleeps — not even during women’s basketball season. Last night’s matchup between Iron Bowl foes turned really, really nasty just before halftime when Alabama’s Breanna Hayden threw a punch at Auburn’s Hasina Muhammad following a battle for a rebound.
And when I say punch I mean a legit sucker job to the face. All that was missing was someone yelling “World Star!”
Muhammad then chased Hayden down to retaliate and landed a punch of her own.
It took no less than 20 minutes to sort everything out after the fracas took place. Three players were ejected and you can expect serious suspensions to be levied.
All in all, a small price to pay for publicity if you’re women’s basketball.
