Fitchburg State suspends Kewan Platt for dirty play, bars him from campus

Screengrab via Boxcast

A MA college announced Wednesday that it was suspending a member of its basketball team after a viral video showed him elbowing another team's player during a game the day before. The player involved has been indefinitely suspended from the team and barred from campus, effective immediately.

Kewan Platt of Fitchburg State was taken out of the game after hitting Nate Tengalia of Nichols College with a vicious strike that left Tengalia on the ground after he connected on his shot. In addition, the case is under review by Fitchburg State for consideration of further sanctions.

Platt, a junior guard from Jamaica Plain in his first season at Fitchburg State, looked back to make sure the official on the sideline was not looking when he delivered the blow.

For what it's worth, Tenaglia's shot went in and Nichols won the game, 84-75.

Fitchburg State basketball player Kewan Platt found himself in the headlines for all of the wrong reasons. "The Nichols College student-athlete involved was able to complete the game, and we continue to monitor his health. We are appalled by the actions of the student-athlete", MASCAC commissioner Angela Baumann said in a statement.

Tenaglia went down in pain, but according to the school's play-by-play, Platt was not called for a foul on the play. Following the incident, Tenaglia finished the game after tests for a concussion were negative. "There was no real setup to this".

Platt was recently honored with the Conference Player of the Week Award.
