Southland Conference suspends 8 over postgame brawl

jerome brewer

The Southland Conference suspended eight players — four from each team — in the aftermath of Monday’s postgame brawl between Texas A&M-Commerce and Incarnate Word.

The players were suspended for “flagrant unsportsmanlike actions,” with the conference saying the suspensions will begin immediately.

Texas A&M Commerce suspensions:

Jerome Brewer Jr. 3 games;
Ant Abraham 3 games;
Kwo Agwa 3 games;
Prince Davies 1 game

Incarnate Word suspensions:

Elijah Davis 3 games;
Alex Anderson 2 games;
Gabe Beny Til 2 games;
Marcus Glover 2 games

“The Southland Conference Board of Directors has set clear expectations for sportsmanship and behavior of our student-athletes, coaches, and spectators during and after competitions,” Southland commissioner Chris Grant said in a statement. “Unfortunately, these expectations were not met on Monday night, and the Southland Conference will not tolerate any unsportsmanlike behavior.”

The brawl began in the handshake line after Commerce’s overtime victory in San Antonio. It remains unclear who or what sparked the melee.

Both teams are near the bottom of the 10-team Southland standings. Commerce is 10-17 overall and 4-10 in Southland play. Incarnate Word is 8-18 and 3-10, respectively.
