Kalin Lucas, former Michigan State Spartan and current member of the Memphis Grizzlies' D-League's Iowa Energy, was ejected from his team's Tuesday night game against the Rio Grande Valley Vipers after engaging in fisticuffs with teammate Jarnell Stokes.
The incident took place during a time-out in the third quarter of Iowa's 124-120 win over the Vipers. There's no word yet as to what started the dispute, but the incident nearly spilled into the stands before teammates and coaches were able to work their way between both players. After officials viewed instant replay of the incident, both Lucas and Stokes were ejected.
Lucas, a graduate of Orchard Lake St. Mary's, is averaging 16.5 points and 4.9 assists for the Energy this season.
