ASU Vs. Southern Miss: Fight On The Court Leads To Ejection Of Three Players

At Monday night's basketball game between the Arizona State Sun Devils and the Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles, there was a scuffle on the court that led to the ejection of multiple players. There are no immediate details as to what started the fight, but at least one player threw a punch, as seen in the image after the jump.

Ed. note: Further video evidence has shown that Southern Miss forward Torye Pelham threw a punch at Ruslan Pateev's face, while the animated gif below only shows the retaliatory punch. Full video at the bottom.

The following Tweet came out shortly after the incident from Jose Miguel Romero with details as to at least two of the players who were ejected from the game:

Technical fouls on Pateev and Pelham, both players ejected. Another S. Miss player who left bench is ejected, too. #ASU

The players mentioned in the tweet are Ruslan Pateev, a center from ASU and Torye Pelham, a forward from Southern Miss.

If the above image is any indication, this could potentially turn into an ugly PR issue for Arizona State. Stay tuned to SB Nation Arizona as we will provide more details when possible.
