Early this morning a viral video of an extremely dirty foul at a college basketball went viral. The video comes from a Monday night game between two Division-III schools Fitchburg State and Nichols.
Watch as a a player on Fitchburg State straight up cold cocks a Nichols player in the face with an elbow after he takes a three-point shot.
Internet detectives quickly identified the Fitchburg State player who threw the punch as Kewan Platt.
People are already calling for Platt to be expelled from school.
Update: Fitchburg State announced that Platt has been indefinitely suspended and has barred from campus for the time being.
“The Fitchburg State community is appalled by the conduct displayed during Tuesday night’s home basketball game,” Fitchburg State athletic director Matthew Burke said in a statement. “The player involved has been indefinitely suspended from the team and barred from campus, effective immediately. His behavior is antithetical to our community values and good sportsmanship. Fitchburg State does not tolerate behavior that violates those standards. The case is being reviewed at the student conduct level for consideration of further sanctions.”
