College Basketball Player Commits Dirtiest Play in Sports History

by at .

Good news, Zaza Pachulia.

You are no longer the dirtiest person playing basketball these days.

Not by a long shot.

Not after what transpired on Tuesday night in a game between Division III teams Fitchburg State and Nichols.

The schools were playing in Massachusetts and everything was going along as it normally does during the course of a basketball game when Nichols guard Nate Tenaglia received a pass in the corner.

He was open, so he fired off a three-pointer.

Just as he releases the ball, however, Fitchburg junior guard Kewan Platt comes flying out of nowhere and DRILLS Tenaglia.

We're not just talking about some kind of regular hard foul, either.

We're talking about a flat-out punch to the face, something that lands far outside the realm of a basketball play and into the realm of... illegal activity?

Yes, many on social media (including Michael Rapaport) are calling for Platt to be arrested.

Watch the video here and you'll immediately see where these folks are coming from.

Tenaglia was able to return to the game and is reportedly doing fine.

But Fitchburg State has suspended Platt and barred him from campus for an unspecified amount of time.

It has also released this statement:

"The Fitchburg State community is appalled by the conduct displayed during Tuesday night’s home basketball game.

"His behavior is antithetical to our community values and good sportsmanship. Fitchburg State does not tolerate behavior that violates those standards.

"The case is being reviewed at the student conduct level for consideration of further sanctions."

We don't even have a joke to conclude with here.

This foul is just flat out insane.

Watch it for yourself now.
