The Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference announced that 11 players from the Seton Hill and West Chester men's basketball teams will serve one-game suspensions for their conduct during an altercation Saturday.

Players were involved in a fight near the conclusion of a PSAC game, which West Chester won 88-75.

Four players were suspended for fighting and seven others for leaving their respective benches.

Seven of the players were from Seton Hill (3-5, 1-3). The conference said it will not release names of the players.

Both programs also have been reprimanded and placed on probation by the PSAC for the remainder of the season. Further incidents can result in harsher penalties, according to a news release.
