Alabama, Auburn women’s players suspended 2 games for fight
Alabama’s Breanna Hayden and Auburn’s Hasina Muhammad have been suspended for two games each for fighting during a game.
Hayden punched Muhammad in the face after the two got tangled up following a free throw in Thursday night’s game in Tuscaloosa. An official trying to separate the two was knocked down, and Muhammad threw a punch after chasing Hayden toward Alabama’s bench.
The NCAA imposes an automatic ejection and one-game suspension for players issued a Flagrant 2 foul for fighting. The Southeastern Conference announced Friday that it has accepted each school’s additional one-game penalty.
Alabama player Meoshonti Knight was also ejected for leaving the bench when the fight broke out late in the first half. The SEC didn’t announce a penalty against her.
