HS Basketball Ref Tosses Player, Player Responds In Kind

I don’t watch a lot of high school basketball, but if they start tossing referees around like they do in southwestern Florida, I might start tuning in. This comes to us from Arcadia, Florida, care of WL‘s new official dirty uncle, Upstate Underdog.

DeSoto’s Mason Holland was ejected after shoving a Port Charlotte player then took out his frustrations on the referee who ejected him. [sic]

And everyone just kinda stands around, either because they’re so shocked that such a thing would happen, or because that ref really is a total dick. Why couldn’t it be both? Let’s just say that it’s both. Seriously, kids: don’t beat up referees. They’re just normal folks looking to stay involved in sports and earn a little extra money to support their meth habits.
