MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A brawl broke out at a basketball game between LeMoyne-Owen and Lane College this weekend.

Alumni said the teams were playing aggressive with a lot of fouls before a player got tripped and a brawl started in the first quarter.

Players began throwing punches on the court as the court was swarmed with people trying to break up the fight.

Rising Fyre Productions captured video of the fight:

One player was even struck with a folding chair in the midst of the chaos.

The game was postponed. It's unclear if it will be made up.
