Highland High School Basketball: Cheap Shot or Not?
This incident occurred on 12/14/12 in the 1st quarter of a high school basketball game in Pocatello, Idaho between Skyline and Highland. The player was not caught by the officials and no foul was called. He has now been suspended one game by the school. Yet the player and the Highland coaches and administration contend that the hit was unintentional. The player who was hit, #22 for Skyline, has not been able to practice yet this week and will likely miss the next 1-2 games due to his concussion symptoms. If this happened in your state, what would the consequences be? How would this be handled? Thanks in advance for sharing your opinions.
