VIDEO: Ex-La Salle Basketball Player Punches Out Opponent in European League Game
Shanel Harrison played one season with the La Salle Explorers after transferring from Virginia Tech. After ending her collegiate career, she was playing this season for Tapiolan Honka — such good team names in Europe! — in a Finnish league.
The key word in the previous sentence is “was.”
With three minutes left and her team down six on Saturday, Harrison sucker punched opponent Niina Laaksonen, according to the Love Women’s Basketball site.
If you rewind to the beginning of the video, you can see the opposing team — Torpon Pojat Helsinki — set two hard screens down the other end. Per The Score, Harrison’s contract has been terminated.
