Fitchburg State University basketball player Kewan Platt made sports headlines after his dirty play at the end of their loss to Nichols College. 

The Division III game  saw Nichols College guard Nate Tenaglia knock down a late 3-pointer before Platt came running in with the flying elbow.

As a result of the play, Platt has been suspended indefinitely while also being banned from Fitchburg’s campus.

“His behavior is antithetical to our community values and good sportsmanship. Fitchburg State does not tolerate behavior that violates those standards. The case is being reviewed at the student conduct level for consideration of further sanctions.”

Matthew Bruun, the university’s director of public information, told ESPN that the Fitchburg State University police department is “fact-finding” and reviewing the incident from Tuesday night.

Nichols College, in its own statement, said Tenaglia was deemed OK to finish the game.

“We were troubled by the unfortunate incident that occurred at Tuesday evening’s men’s basketball game at Fitchburg State University,” Nichols College athletics director Chris Colvin said in a statement. “The Nichols College student-athlete involved was able to complete the game, and we continue to monitor his health. We are proud of the way our student-athletes handled the incident and that they did not allow it to escalate. We are aware that the Fitchburg State administration is handling the matter.”

According to Nichols spokesman Pete Divito, Tenaglia had guarded Platt throughout the game, frustrating him with his defense.

Following the incident, Tenaglia finished the game after tests for a concussion were negative.

Divito said school officials were glad Tenaglia was OK and relieved “most of the team didn’t see it” due to concerns about a potential altercation.

Platt’s name has been removed from the Fitchburg State basketball program’s website. You just can’t do that.

Unacceptable. It was a non basketball foul.
