WATCH: Basketball Player Throws Cheap Shot, Kicked Off Fitchburg State's Team And Barred From Campus

A flare of emotion got Fitchburg State University junior basketball player Kewan Platt ejected from a game, thrown off his team and barred from the campus and all school activities. During a game against Nichols College on Tuesday, Platt threw a right elbow to the unshielded face of Nate Tenaglia.

During the waning minutes of the 84-75 win by Nichols College, Platt had the ball on the offensive end. Guarded by Tenaglia, Platt launched a 3-point shot that clanged off the rim. Tenaglia didn't appear to touch Platt, who turned to the referee as if asking for a foul.

When Nichols got the ball down the court, Tenaglia got an open 3-point shot and took it from the corner. After is follow through, about a second later as he was watching his shot, Platt rushes the shooter and throws a hard right elbow to Tenaglia's face, knocking him to the ground. Though the referee under the basket didn't see the hit, the follow ref did.

Platt is a junior guard who was recently named the men's basketball player of the week for the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference. Late Tuesday night, Fitchburg State officials kicked Platt off the team and barred him from all school activities. On Wednesday, the MSCAC rescinded his player of the week award, which had been given out on Monday.

"In addition, the case is under review by Fitchburg State for consideration of further sanctions," MASCAC officials tweeted. "The MASCAC has also vacated his player of the week award. His behavior goes against the MASCAC's mission which includes good sportsmanship."

Conference officials also apologized to Tenaglia and members of the Nichols College team.

Platt is no longer listed on the team's roster.
