Kentucky-Florida scuffle clears benches; eight ejected in SEC women's tournament

University Florida and University of Kentucky's first round SEC tournament matchup Wednesday got pretty tense Wednesday in the second half after both benches cleared following an exchange between Florida's Tatyana Wyche and Kentucky's Ajae Petty

After Kentucky scored, Petty caught the ball and shoved it into Wyche's face, who was running back up the court. In response, Wyche launched the basketball toward the back of Petty's head. Although she didn't connect, chaos ensued and both players had to be restrained. Eight players were ejected after the pandemonium, which delayed the game for more than 20 minutes.
