Who said high school basketball wasn't serious? Things got way too serious during a Philadelphia-area high school game on Tuesday, resulting in one coach being placed on administrative leave.
Neshaminy and Pennsbury were in a tight game with seconds remaining in regulation. According to the City of Basketball Love blog, a Neshaminy player was called for a charge, wiping out a layup that could've made the margin three points. That's when coach Jerry Devine lost it.
He was called for a technical foul — probably for arguing — and immediately head-butted the referee, who fell to the floor. A Neshaminy spokesperson told the Bucks County Intelligencer Wednesday morning that Devine will not be allowed to coach or teach until the school completes its review of the incident.
