CBU seeks punishment of StFX coach for alleged attack

January 30, 2009

Cape Breton University is seeking disciplinary action from Atlantic University Sport against a St. Francis Xavier University's assistant men's basketball coach for allegedly striking a teenaged timekeeper -- a CBU student -- in the face in the final seconds of heated game last Wednesday evening. The alleged attack led to a confrontation between both teams, and the coach was escorted from the gym. CBU president John Harker, who was present at the game, calls the incident "totally unacceptable." National Post | Halifax Chronicle-Herald | CBC
