Re: Griner Ejected After Punching Opponent

Baylor's superstar, Brittney Griner, punched Texas Tech's Jordan Barncastle in the face during the first half of an NCAA basketball game on Wednesday ,March 3, 2010 in Lubbock, Texas. Brittney Griner was evicted from the game in the second half.

Brittney Griner’s mighty punch attracted so much attention for the women’s basketball game that her videos and pictures were circulated all over the World Wide Web and posted on Youtube. It has been reported that Brittney Griner’s action was triggered by Jordan Barncastle who had bad-mouthed her. Well, who is to blame? Brittney Griner was awarded a two-games suspension for her violence and breach of conduct. NCAA went by the the law, according to which a one-game automatic suspension is given to the offender. But they then doubled it for Brittney Griner keeping in mind the harshness of the punch. Reportedly, Brittney Griner broke her opponent's nose! What a blow!
