A Division II basketball game between LeMoyne-Owen and Lane College turned into a massive brawl last weekend after a fan hit one of the players with a chair.  It all started with a much smaller fight between two players on the floor.  During that chaos after that fight a fan walked onto the court with a chair and drilled one of the Lane players with it WWE style (see it at the 1:50 mark of the video).  After the melee the game was postponed and there is an ongoing investigation into the matter.  “Such behavior will not be tolerated in our league under any circumstances,” SIAC Commissioner Greg Moore said in a release to CBS Sports. “As a consequence, and at the conclusion of our internal investigation, all responsible parties in connection with this incident shall be subject to the most severe sanctions authorized by the conference rules and bylaws.”  They don’t play around in Memphis.- TO
