LA MARQUE, Texas No one has been charged, but the La Marque Independent School District is investigating a brawl that broke out after the boys basketball game Friday at home against Manvel.
Manvel beat La Marque High School s varsity basketball team, 60-45, but the fight did not break out until after the game was over and most of the players were off the court, said Mike Bass, athletic director for Alvin Independent School District. Manvel is part of the Alvin district.
The game went great, Bass said. There were no issues between the players or the coaches.
But as the teams went to their locker rooms, the security officer on duty went outside, Bass said.
It was while the officer was out of the building that about 15 people attacked the Manvel head basketball coach, Greg Devers, and knocked over a couple of parents from Manvel, he said.
The La Marque players were in the locker room, but a few Manvel players still were on the court, along with some parents and Devers, Bass said.
