A Georgia tournament basketball game in Emerson, Georgia, was the sight of a brawl this weekend.
During a game between the Houston Raptors and Chicago-based R.A.W. Athletics, a fight broke out between R.A.W. Athletics players and referees, per Ryan Young of Yahoo Sports (h/t For The Win's Steven Ruiz).
This was a Gatorade Association Presents the Finals game and wasn't sanctioned by AAU.
Doug Jones of RCS Sports shared clips of the incident, which offer little context behind what sparked the scuffle (warning: NSFW images and language):
R.A.W. Athletics head coach Howard Martin came to the defense of his team in a now-deleted tweet:
"A ref actually walked up on one of our players and attacked him. Everyone tried to break it all up, then the ref's father (who was working a game on a different court) ran over to our court and rushed our guys..everyone in the gym, the other team and the directors saw everything"
LakePoint Sports hosted the game and issued a statement on Twitter, saying it's "disappointed" by the brawl and is "taking the appropriate action" with law enforcement.
