TSU athletic director calls fight at basketball game "tremendous mistake"

Texas Southern University's athletic director, Charles McClelland is calling a fight that broke out at a women's basketball game "a tremendous mistake."

It happened Saturday night.

The women's basketball team from Texas Southern University was playing Southern University from Louisiana for the Southwestern Athletic Conference women's basketball regular-season title when a bench-clearing fight broke out midway through the second half.

"Put a lot of energy into getting the women's basketball program where it's competing for championships and it's just very sad and unfortunate that the incident occurred on Saturday night," said McClelland.

The incident was captured on cellphone video.

Cellphone video shows players throwing punches and shoving each other.

McClelland says athletic employees rushed onto the court to break up the fight.

According to McClelland, the conference is investigating the incident. He would not say whether the students involved would be suspended but told KPRC 2 the school is considering counseling and community service for them.

"These are 18- and 19-year-olds that made a tremendous mistake. We're not going to throw them out with the trash. We're going to make sure we rehabilitate them to get them to understand their actions were not appropriate for intercollegiate athletics," said McClelland.

The NCAA is reviewing the incident and the outcome of Saturday's game, said McClelland.
