Division III basketball player takes flagrant shot at opponent's head

A Division III game in Massachusetts was marred by a vicious cheap shot better suited for the WWE than basketball. More

A Fitchburg State player displayed one of the most blatantly vicious, dirty acts in recent college basketball memory during his team's Tuesday game against fellow Division III opponent Nichols College. Tenaglia didn't appear to touch Platt, who turned to the referee as if asking for a foul.

Platt, a MA native who was named the conference's player of the week Monday after averaging 24 points and 12.5 rebounds, is no longer listed on the Falcons' roster as of Wednesday afternoon. On Wednesday afternoon, the school released a statement saying that Platt has been indefinitely suspended from the team and barred from campus, adding that it is "appalled" by his conduct. In addition, the case is under review by Fitchburg State for consideration of further sanctions.

But the award has been vacated after he was suspended and barred from campus.

During the waning minutes of the 84-75 win by Nichols College, Platt had the ball on the offensive end.

"We were troubled by the unfortunate incident that occurred at Tuesday evening's men's basketball game at Fitchburg State University".

Border officials to close northbound lanes ahead of caravan's arrival
About 1,300 migrants in a second caravan were resting at a stadium in Mexico City, where the first group had stayed last week. Most of the troops are in Texas, including in the Rio Grande Valley, the southern border's most heavily trafficked section.

"We are proud of the way our student-athletes handled the incident and that they did not allow it to escalate". "On behalf of the MASCAC and Fitchburg State, we have apologized to the Nichols College student-athlete, the team and institution".

The victim from Nichols was a freshman guard named Nate Tenaglia.

Platt, a criminal justice major, is seen walking away as Tengalia is writhing on the floor in pain. "There was no real setup to this".

"His behavior goes against the MASCAC's mission which includes good sportsmanship", Baumann said.
