WESTFIELD, Indiana — A girls travel basketball game took a violent turn when a midcourt brawl broke out among a referee, player and several spectators that ended with a team being ejected from the tournament.

“Yes, it was an unfortunate incident that we had to address this weekend,” Evan Suttner, president of the Pacers Athletic Center told IndyStar in an email Thursday.

The altercation occurred over the weekend at the Prime Midwest Event at the Pacers Athletic Center during a game between Baylor Basketball and Indiana Elite. Baylor trailed 34-12 with 16 seconds left in the first quarter when its coach began arguing with the referee over a call.

A technical foul was called on Baylor and the coach picked up her bag to leave the game. Her players and other team staff moved to leave the court as well.
