Saint John “basket-brawl” during an anti-bullying theme night

A brawl during a basketball game at Saint John Harbour Station last week has resulted in 52 games worth of player suspensions and 13-thousand-dollars in fines.

The brawl between the Saint John Riptide and the Kitchener Waterloo Titans took place during an anti-bullying night theme at Harbour station on Thursday.

The Nationl Basketball League says that nine members of the Saint John squad have been handed a combined 29 games in suspensions and fines totalling 75-hundred-dollars.

In order for the teams to dress enough players for upcoming games, the league ruled that each team will serve the suspensions three players at a time.
