What is happening to good ole high school basketball?

A few weeks ago, two schools called off a high school basketball game because they feared violence. A recent AA upstate semi final game between Abbeville and Southside justified those fears.

The game was a great match up, with Southside finding a way to win over the visiting Panthers. What followed was ugly. As the SC High School League sees it, Abbeville players started a fight. Eight Abbeville players were suspended from school for five days by Abbeville officials. The SC High School League will let Southside play on in the Upstate final.

Who knows who was to blame for the fight. Abbeville will argue its points. Southside will argue its. The SC High School League made its.

One thing is certain, the fight was just ugly. It was an abomination to the spirit of high school sports and to the game of basketball. Basketball is a great game, and has no place for thugs. Everyone involved should be ashamed.

  1. Be clear. Abbeville caused this. They are always causing such things. Ban Abbeville for all sports and do the rest of us a favor. Gangs should not play sports.

    Looks like rednecks like you from the upstate are destroying the game. Don't lie. You would be right out there with them if you were twenty years of so younger.

    I hate Abbeville. Thank you thugs, for making everyone in the upstate look bad. Can't wait to see you get your asses kicked legally by the Hornets next year, if you Abbeville thugs are allowed to play.

  6. Should we expect no less from a community that produced morons who shot people over DOT papers?

    Abbeville is the home of nuts and thugs. BAN THEM FROM HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS AND LET GEORGIA ANNEX ABBEVILLE COUNTY!

    Nuff said.

    Abbeville had one bad night, but we still beat the crap out of the opponents. The scoreboard ain't the only way for us to keep score.

    Ware Shoals, kicking your ass is a regular thing. Moron Murdock looking at the ground, that is a beautiful thing.

    Leave Abbeville alone. You don't want to deal with us when we are really pissed off. God help that charter school and Dixie.
