Women's Basketball Player Lands Brutal Sucker Punch During a Fast Break


In this clip of a Finnish league women’s basketball game between Honka and ToPo, you’ll see #33 in white run into a player and go down hard. The player, Shanel Harrison, takes a moment to get up. Then, at about the :17 mark, Harrison – who played college ball at La Salle and Virginia Tech – squares up and lands a punch straight to Niina Laakso’s face, knocking her over. Laakso is the one who initially knocked Harrison down.

In the wake of the incident, Honka has terminated Harrison’s contract with the team.
