Wild brawl between Robert Morris and Jacksonville causes refs to eject all but 10 players

Nov 25, 2023

Competitive pushing and shoving is a decades-old tradition on Black Friday, and a college basketball game got in on the action this year.

An Urban-Bennett Memorial Classic game between Jacksonville and Robert Morris devolved into chaos Friday when basically every player and coach got involved in a massive on-court brawl. Punches were reportedly thrown and both head coaches needed to be restrained.

Once the melee ended, the referees opted to eject every player from the game except for the ones who were playing at the time of the brawl, leaving both teams to play the remaining time with no substitutions. Per FanSided's Tristan Freeman, the total number of players to be ejected was 17.
