Video: Fitchburg State Basketball Player Suspended For Dirty Shot To Opponent’s Head

BOSTON (CBS) — A Fitchburg State basketball player has been suspended indefinitely and kicked off campus after he delivered a dangerous and flagrant shot to an opponent’s head Tuesday night.

In the final minutes of Tuesday night’s game between the Falcons and Nichols College, Fitchburg State guard Kewan Platt blatantly threw a forearm at Nichols’ Nate Tenaglia as he attempted a corner three.

Prior to his cheap shot, Platt air-balled a three at the other end of the floor and was upset that he didn’t get a call. You can watch the full game here, with the whole incident starting at the 2:01:45 mark. Tenaglia hit his three prior to taking the malicious shot to the face, giving Nichols a 13-point lead at the time.

Platt, a junior guard from Jamaica Plain in his first season at Fitchburg State, looked back to make sure the official on the sideline was not looking when he delivered the blow. But another official saw the act and promptly ejected Platt from the game.

On Wednesday, the Fitchburg State announced that the player had been suspended from the team and barred from campus. The incident is still being reviewed, and Platt could face further sanctions.
