We’ve already heard that the city of Chicago has taken drastic measures to cut down on violence at high school basketball games by banning opposing fans from attending or having teams play to completely empty gyms. West Virginia might want to take a cue from that concept after a girls game got out of hand on Friday night.
When the dust settled in a bench-clearing brawl involving the players and fans of Greenbrier East and Woodrow Wilson High Schools, two fans were kicked out of the gym, another was arrested, and all but four players on each team were ejected. The fracas happened with East holding a 57-56 lead with two minutes left in the game. And that’s not all.
