A college basketball player has been suspended for a dirty play during a game in Massachusetts. Video of the incident shows Kewan Platt, a player on the Fitchburg State University team, elbowing an opposing player in the face after he makes a 3-point shot. Platt was tossed from the game; he was also suspended from the team and barred from the Fitchburg State University campus. The school said it was "appalled" by Platt's conduct and he could face more sanctions.
