Games Canceled After Basketball Brawl

A basketball-court brawl that broke out on Tuesday forced a boys Public League game between Morgan Park and Bogan to be suspended, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Two players started the fight with just a little more than 4 minutes left in the game.

Morgan Park's Jerome Brown reportedly fouled Bogan's Moshawn Thomas as he tried to dunk the ball. When they started pushing each other, players and spectators rushed onto the court from the sidelines.

Security and police officers broke up the fight, but 10 minutes later, another one started. Morgan Park coach Nick Irvin then took his players to their bus, the report says.
