ORLANDO, FLA. (AP) - The Valentine’s Day game between Bethune-Cookman and Maryland Eastern Shore that was suspended last month because of an in-game fight between the schools will be replayed on a neutral court.

The game has been set for a 2 p.m. tip-off Saturday at North Carolina Central in Durham, N.C.

The game was originally stopped when an altercation erupted with Bethune-Cookman leading in the second half. Saturday’s game will be replayed from the beginning.

Nine players _ four from Bethune-Cookman and five from Maryland Eastern Shore _ were suspended for one game by the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference for their involvement in the skirmish. Both schools also imposed additional penalties on the players.

The MEAC tournament begins Tuesday in Winston-Salem, N.C.
