Garden Grove, CA – A 15-year-old girl was left with a possible concussion after being sucker punched by a player during a California youth basketball game.
“THIS… this right here makes me SICK to my stomach. This happened to MY DAUGHTER at her game yesterday. There is absolutely no place for something like this in basketball, I don’t care how famous you are,” mom Alice Ham said. “This mom told her daughter to “go and hit her” and my kid gets an unprovoked sucker punch. I’m sorry but it’s everything that’s wrong with youth sports. The girl and her mom showed absolutely no remorse and offered no apology. Youth sports needs to change.”
The girl and her mother were removed from the game after the incident. The girl who threw the punch has since retained a lawyer.
A police report for assault has been filed.
