    And the ridiculous part was the assistant coach for one of the teams got suspended for two games, and I really don't know why - they said he shoved one of the players, but I didn't see it....crazy...

    Maybe it didn't get caught on camera?

    The assistant coach was Rick Mahorn who was trying to BREAK UP the fight. Lisa Leslie was coming toward the scrum and Mahorn (6'9 about 260-300) put his arms up and pushed her back to keep more players from getting involved. She fell backwards and landed on the court a few feet away. It was completely unintentional and every commentator (male and female) thought as much. The suspension he received is bullcrap.

    Granted Mahorn deserved a game for leaving the bench because thats the rule in all of sports but two games was ridiculus.

    Mahorn didn't deserve anytime. I dont know if the WNBA has any rules for leaving the bench. All the female/male commentators I heard said he was only acting as a peacemaker. However, Leslie didn't think so having been pushed down and not knowing why especially since she was trying to be a peacemaker too.
