Breogán’s mascot, accused of “insulting” and “attacking” UCAM Murcia players

Both teams starred in a tangana yesterday and the Murcian will denounce the attitude of the club employee to the ACB


The Endesa League played yesterday one of the star matches of the day, CB Breogán against UCAM Murcia, two of the revelation teams in these first stages of competition. The match, which was finally decided for the Galicians with an even score (94-89), had to be stopped for a few minutes because, as a result of a divided ball, a tangana between the two teams arose in which also The locals’ mascot, the lion Máximus, was involved. After what happened and according to local media, UCAM Murcia announced this afternoon that it will denounce the attitude of the mascot to the Association of Basketball Clubs for “insulting” and “even attacking” its players.

The confrontation began when, in the third quarter, the Dominican Sadiel Rojas (Murcia) and the Canadian Bell-Haynes (Breogán) went for a split ball. The American, during the struggle, put his hands to his face after receiving a blow from his rival, apparently involuntary. It was then that the visitors’ point guard, Isaiah Taylor, began to reproach Bell-Haynes for complaining. Everything exploded and both teams got into a ball of grabs and shoves (the star of the locals, Musa, ended up against a billboard), while Taylor, with clenched fists and in a very challenging position, surrounded the scrum of players. Beside him, Maximus, Breogán’s pet, appeared, his hands outstretched, and Taylor released his hand.

Murcia, after the event, claims that “the safety rules established in the regulations were violated and that they must be complied with”, referring to the intervention of Máximus in the brawl. The Murcian club also denounces that a spectator from Breogán pushed Rojas during the fight. Sito Alonso, UCAM coach, assured that after the end of the match he had to calm down several of his players. According to the technician, Thad McFadden, one of the most affected, received insults that “border on the illegal.”
