This is a very a very ugly scene at a basketball game.

It's video of an Atlanta AAU basketball team brawling with referees on the court over the weekend.


The brawl took place during a game between Chicago’s Raw Athletics and the Houston Raptors.

Apparently, Raw Athletics players and referees were involved in multiple scrums.


Whatever the case, this is something that cannot be condoned, in any way.

This is absolutely horrible, and there's no place for it in any part of society, much less at a sporting event, in which players and officials are involved.

AAU has a bad enough reputation as it is. Some of it is justified, but there are many outstanding teams, players, coaches, refs, directors, that do things the right way.

Anybody that had anything to do with this ugly brawl should be banned from the AAU ranks for life.
