Mike McCarthy involved in incident at HS basketball game

Mike McCarthy involved in incident at HS basketball game If we were wondering what former Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy is up to after being fired by the team months ago, we don’t have to look much further than basketball. 

“No team will advance to Tuesday’s Super-Sectional game , and DePaul College Prep will advance to the Class 3A State Final field. It is vital that we continue to send the message that incidents like this at high school contests will not be tolerated. They are unacceptable in society, no less a high school

Chicago high schools Farragut and North Lawndale were both disqualified after their Class 3A playoff game ended in a brawl .

"The conclusion of tonight’s IHSA Class 3A Boys Basketball Sectional Final at North Lawndale High School in Chicago between North Lawndale High School and Farragut Career Academy was marred by a fourth quarter fight involving players and fans from both schools. The game was postponed while the gym was cleared of all spectators, and the teams were sent to their respective locker rooms.

"After speaking to game management and the game officials, the IHSA ruled the contest a double-forfeit and it was never concluded. No team will advance to Tuesday’s Super-Sectional game, and DePaul College Prep will advance to the Class 3A State Final field. These are never easy decisions to make, but we believe it is the correct one. It is vital that we continue to send the message that incidents like this at high school contests will not be tolerated. They are unacceptable in society, no less a high school sporting event."

It was an unfortunate end to what appeared to be a tightly contested game.
