Ugly brawl breaks out at end of Southland game

A massive postgame brawl broke out following Texas A&M-Commerce's 76-72 win over Incarnate Word on Monday as both teams started shaking hands.

It's unclear what sparked the handshake line fight, which involved multiple players from both squads throwing punches at one another. Coaches and players from both teams tried to separate the brawling players, but the fracas continued for more than a minute as members of the two programs scuffled across the court.

There were multiple players on the floor and multiple pile-ups as the fight continued. Broadcast analysts said a "young girl" in the crowd got hurt as a result of the brawl and one of the team's managers had "blood on his face," though there was no immediate information from authorities or the schools on injuries.

The Southland Conference issued a statement later Monday, saying that it is aware of the "end-of-game situation that occurred."

"We will be working closely with both universities to review the footage and issue appropriate disciplinary action," the Southland said in its statement. "Unsportsmanlike behavior is unacceptable in the Southland Conference and the safety of our student-athletes, spectators, and officials remains a top priority."

Messages from ESPN to officials at both schools were not returned.

The two teams are at the bottom of the standings in the Southland Conference with each entering the game on Monday with just three league wins. Texas A&M-Commerce won the first matchup between the two teams.

Texas A&M Commerce head coach Jaret Von Rosenberg called the first game between the two teams "a dogfight" on his postgame radio show.
