Fight breaks out during Ben Davis HS basketball game

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — School officials in Wayne Township are investigating a fight that broke out at a Ben Davis High School girls’ basketball game Saturday.

The Ben Davis players involved will face consequences at school, officials say.

Officials are also working with administrators at Pike High School to determine which players took part.

Wayne Township Schools released the following statement:

We are extremely disappointed that good sportsmanship was not shown by the players involved in today’s girls basketball game at Ben Davis High School. We are working closely with administrators at Pike High School and the IHSAA to determine exactly which players were involved in this incident.

This behavior is not representative of our values, beliefs, or how we coach our student athletes. It is not reflective of the Ben Davis pride our students, alumni, and community share. And it certainly does not reflect the rich tradition and success of our girls basketball team. The Ben Davis players involved will face consequences at school, and we will comply with any consequences we receive from the IHSAA.
