State police are investigating the stabbing of two men during a fight between members of the St. Bonaventure and Jamestown Community College basketball teams.

Troopers say the fight occurred around 3 a.m. Sunday on the St. Bonaventure campus in Olean, 60 miles south of Buffalo.

Police say two 20-year-old men, James Chatmon and Rameek Boyd, were treated at a hospital and released.

Authorities say no one has been arrested but the investigation is continuing.

Boyd is a member of JCC's Cattaraugus campus team. Chatmon was dismissed from the team for academic reasons.

Investigators say the names of the St. Bonaventure players involved aren't being released yet.

The coaches of both teams declined to comment about the fight.
