She was definitely baited though, she was nearly thrown herself

I know that there've been too many mentions of Blount but he was baited too

baited? i guess that's the first time that's ever happened? should have been the rest of the year

Its because she is a woman. It is a double standard. A guy does this, and he is a thug, bad role model, etc.

she's a freshman. she is going to be marked for the rest of her college bball career. anything happens, even if she is not the main culprit, she has erased any initial reasonable doubt.

i actually think the double standard would work the opposite as you guys suggest.

a guy punching another guy is nothing new and has that justification of "boys being boys".

a girl punching another girl, i would think, would get much more scrutiny and a more severe reaction given that you just dont see girls punching each other as much as the boys.

Agreed. Sure she was baited. There's "baiting" going on in pretty much every single sporting event. The issue is how you handle it. She threw a haymaker at a girl who wasn't even looking in her direction. 2 games is a joke.

right.. you'd think, but there's no common sense when it comes to entitlement for women

I mean it's proven in our chemical makeup differences that we're more prone to fighting
