MADRID, 28 Abr. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The Euroleague Independent Basketball Disciplinary Judge sanctioned French power forward Guerschon Yabusele with five games this Friday for his role in the incidents at Real Madrid-Partizán, and also punished Kevin Punter, Matthias Lessort and Gabriel Deck.
The second game of the 'Playoff' between these teams this Thursday at the WiZink Center had to be suspended with 1:40 remaining due to the brawl that broke down after a harsh foul by Sergio Llull on Punter when the match was decided in favor of the Serbian team (80-95).
As a result of the blow from Mahón to the American, the players got into a fight and Yabusele was one of the most aggressive, turning around and hitting Exum against the ground of the field, while the Australian, Punter, Deck and Lessort also they were in the fight that ended with the final suspension of the match after the application of 21 disqualifying.
The Euroleague warned that it would take 24 hours to issue an opinion after what happened and issued a statement this Friday in which its disciplinary judge sanctioned the French power forward with five games, who is saying goodbye to the continental season and will not be able to play the start either next time
In addition, Kevin Punter was also punished with two games, while Deck and Lessort received one sanction, so none of them will be able to be next Tuesday at the Stark Arena in Belgrade for the third game of the series. The Argentine and the French would return for a theoretical fourth and the American if there was a fifth at the WiZink Center.
In the same way, the two clubs received a fine of 50,000 euros each "for the unsportsmanlike conduct of both teams that prevented the normal conclusion of the match in accordance with article 29.1.a) of the Disciplinary Code." "These decisions are final, due to the nature of the exceptional procedure for occurring in a non-regular season phase," warned the competition.
