TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey high school basketball power has been suspended from this year’s state tournament over a fracas during a game in California.

The New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association announced Friday that Patrick School boys’ team could not compete in the state tournament.

The NJSIAA says the discipline is mandatory after five players were ejected from a game on Dec. 29 in the Under Armour Holiday Classic in San Diego. That’s because of a rule that ban teams if three or more players or coaches are ejected during a single game for “flagrantly unsportsmanlike conduct.”

Two Patrick players were ejected for their roles in a shoving match during a game and three were thrown out for leaving the bench, according to NJ.com (https://bit.ly/1xN5C2p ).
