A Division III men's basketball player has been kicked off his team and barred from Fitchburg State University after elbowing an opposing player late Tuesday, athletic officials announced Wednesday. Platt, who majors in Criminal Justice, transferred to the program from Monroe Community College. "Fitchburg State does not tolerate behavior that violates those standards", the statement continued. Platt can be seen jogging toward Tenaglia - after the latter had already completed the act of shooting - and elbowing him in the face almost two seconds after the ball left his hands.

Full video of the game confirms that there were no previous physical altercations but does provide a bit more context. Tenaglia hit his three prior to taking the malicious shot to the face, giving Nichols a 13-point lead at the time.

The culprit, a junior guard by the name of Kewan Platt, has since been suspended from school and barred from campus, according to TMZ. In addition, the case is under review by Fitchburg State for consideration of further sanctions.

"The MASCAC and Fitchburg State University take this incident very seriously. On behalf of the MASCAC and Fitchburg State, we apologize to the Nichols College student-athlete, the team and institution". We are proud of the way our student-athletes handled the incident and that they did not allow it to escalate. The MASCAC has also vacated his player of the week award.

Nichols spokesman Pete Divito said Platt was frustrated after Tenaglia covered him throughout the game and smothered him on defense. His behaviour goes against the MASCAC's mission which includes good sportsmanship.
