Local girls basketball player ejected after fight breaks out


As reported by FOX28 Saturday night, during the fourth quarter of the South Bend Washington Holiday tournament things became very heated.

In the fourth quarter of a physical match-up between Washington and Oregon-Davis, things escalated quickly when Panthers junior Breonda Green threw a punch towards the head of Bobcats sophomore Lexi Minix. The blow from Green came shortly after Minix appeared to have pushed Green near the free throw line. The punch from Green resulted in an immediate ejection.

After the hit, Minix fell to the ground and at the end of the game was taken to the hospital for care. According to Oregon-Davis Head Coach Terry Minix, Lexi is doing better and is no longer in the hospital.

Terry Minix, who's also Lexi's father, says they will not pursue any sort of legal action against Green or Washington High School for the incident. Minix also said his team will move forward from this and believes it will make them a better team.

Washington Head Coach Maurice Scott says the team plans to suspend Green for her actions. He said he would never condone this type of behavior and was very disappointed that it happened during such a closely matched game.
