Last Friday during an Illinois Class 3A basketball final a brawl broke out in the final minutes of the game getting both Farragut and North Lawndale disqualified! Donovan Jones of Farragut went up for a dunk and a North Lawndale player looked to undercut him causing Jones to land awkwardly on the floor. Both teams jumped on the court to square off and even some spectators joined in. Punches were thrown during the scuffle and after the gym was cleared the Illinois High School Association decided to end the game in a double forfeit. IHSA Executive Director Craig Anderson said, “No team will advance to Tuesday’s Super-Sectional game, and DePaul College Prep will advance to the Class 3A State Final field”.
