Women's Basketball Player Kicked Off Team After Horrific Sucker Punch During Game

Monday March 10th, 2014

The video above is footage from a Finnish women's basketball game and shows former La Salle basketball player Shanel Harrison uncorking a brutal punch to down her opponent (play occurs at the :16 mark in the video). Harrison, who played for Tapiolan Honka, was apparently upset after falling to floor on the previous play after making contact at the top of the key.

Tapiolan Honka announced on their website that Shanel Harrison's contract had been terminated due to the unsportsmanlike conduct.
