Benedict College and Voorhees basketball scrimmage turned ugly on Monday night. Really ugly.
The two South Carolina HBCUs got into a brawl with punches and chairs being thrown at the scrimmage, which took place on Benedict’s campus.
The video is currently posted on Twitter. (Warning: NSFW language)
The athletic department released a statement shortly thereafter via Facebook:
“The incident during the scrimmage tonight between Benedict College and Voorhees College does not represent the behavior nor the athletic conduct that we support at Benedict. To our guests, students, families and fans, we apologize that your experience tonight was not enjoyable. Please know that an investigation is taking place now and we are committed to resolving this matter and resuming an enjoyable, family friendly basketball season. “
Benedict is set to tip off the season Nov. 1 against College of Charleston on the coast. BC went 21-10 last year.
Vorhees is an HBCU that participates in the NAIA.
