Ballarat basketball grand final ends in brawl

BALLARAT Basketball Association will hold a tribunal within the week after a grand final was abandoned on Monday night.

Players from the Saints and Saints Blue teams were involved in an all-in melee toward the end of the A2 division decider after a disputed jump-ball call by a referee.

Ballarat Basketball Association chief executive officer Peter Eddy said there were no injuries to players or referees.

"Referees abandoned the game as a result of unsportsman-like conduct," he said.

"They felt if the teams are going to behave in that way, we felt to not award the pennants."
