March 11 (UPI) — Six players were ejected after an on-court fight late in South Carolina’s win over LSU in the Southeastern Conference women’s basketball title game in Greenville, S.C.

The incident occurred with 2:08 remaining in the Gamecocks’ 79-72 triumph Sunday at Bons Secours Wellness Arena.

Gamecocks star Kamila Cardoso, who shoved Tigers guard Flau’jae Johnson to the ground during the scuffle, is expected to receive a one-game suspension and miss the start of the NCAA tournament.

“What you saw were two highly competitive teams try to win a conference championship,” Gamecocks coach Dawn Staley told reporters.

“They did not handle it well. Our players didn’t. Their players didn’t and it escalated. I want to thank the officials and everybody that jumped in and calmed the situation down.”
