Watch: Brawl at Indiana high school basketball game
Monday February 9th, 2015

An Indiana high school basketball game between Griffith and Hammond on Saturday night was called off after a massive brawl.

As Griffith's Anthony Murphy went up for a dunk to cap a fastbreak, Hammond's Tim Echoles fouled him hard into the padded wall along the baseline. Immediately, players and people from the stands flooded to the court, igniting the melee.

Echoles was ejected at the 5:32 mark in the first quarter with Griffith leading 4-0. Griffith police came onto the court to break up the fight, which apparently did not cause any serious injuries. The officers also obtained video of the brawl and are attempting to identify which adults may have thrown punches, reports

Both schools are in the Indiana High School Athletic Association's Class 3A Hammond Sectional and could meet in the postseason.

The schools' junior varsity game that night also reportedly had several technical fouls called amid trash talking back and forth.
