NYP: Memphis women’s basketball star Jamirah Shutes has been charged with assault after appearing to punch a Bowling Green player in a handshake line following a game between the teams Thursday night. 

Bowling Green released a statement to Ohio CBS affiliate WTOL saying that Shutes, a senior guard who made second-team All-AAC this season, has been criminally charged. 

In the handshake line after the Falcons defeated Memphis 73-60 in the NIT’s Round of 16 on Thursday night in Bowling Green, Ohio, Shutes stopped to exchange words with Bowling Green guard Elissa Brett and appeared to throw a punch

“Following Thursday’s unwarranted physical incident after the WNIT home game, the Bowling Green State University Police Department has charged a member of the Memphis Women’s Basketball team with assault,” the university’s statement said.

  1. Wild animals is wild animals and people is people – the two shouldn’t associate.

    Don’t sing to the bears; don’t pet the tigers; don’t keep honey badgers in a sack.

    mortem tyrannis
    izlamo delenda est …

  2. Black female privilege. If this had been a white male, a dozen federal agencies would be involved and perpetrator would be in jail without hope of ever getting out.

  3. Threw a punch, or “appeared to throw a punch”? Who writes this stuff? She threw a punch, and was charged with assault. Battery should have been included in the charges. Privileged thugs.

  4. I grew up in Detroit, no story here. This is normal activity amongst a certain subculture. Never, ever, get near a group of said subculture without a cordless hole puncher.

  5. Black on white crime. The player should be expelled from college, any scholarships forfeited. But the knee-grow will get a pass, rewarded and reminded how bad life is for the knee-grows and her behavior is justified.

  6. Every Group has their Sub Culture who Brings them down.

    Like Chris Rock’s 1996 OLD Comedy Skit: Niggas vs. Black People.
    There is also:
    White Trash vs Americans
    French people vs. Quebec
    Canadians vs Trudeau Voters
    Italians vs. Woodbridge Ontario. (our New Jersey)

    This particular Garbage needs to get KICKED OFF the TEAMS and PAY for her own Education.

  7. She was clearly triggered.
    A mostly white BB team beating a mostly black BB team? That cannot stand without a fight. Whites can’t be allowed to appropriate this sport.

  8. If its the one that was featured on TV; “You Gotta Eat Here” No.

    That place is in Brampton.

    I’m a WOP so I really make it myself rather than go out for it.


  9. There is a FANTASTIC Family owned Vietnamese place “Pho 99” located in the same parking lot as the Chic Fil A – 400 & Rutherford Rd.

    3255 Rutherford Rd unit #4 & 5

    Best one I’ve ever been to.

  10. No dude Italian Gardens was in Woodbridge.
    Probably before your time.
    We used to ride our bikes up there and spend the day jumping off the 3 meter board.
    It was giant outdoor park with a huge pool.
    Mid 60’s.
    And by the way,i married a WOP.

  11. And speaking of Vietnamese food.
    I am a part owner (retired) of a company that since the early 80’s has had a large contingent of lovely ladies from Vietnam.
    I watched them grow up,i watched their kids grow up and am now seeing them with their gran kids.
    Most have worked for us for 27 years plus we even have gone to court to keep a few in Canada. Not their fault.
    So yeah, Vietnamese food, i know where to go.

  12. Let me continue.
    The other day i made a visit to work.
    Out in the parking lot having a smoke with fellow deplorables when Vi pulls up in a new Tesla.I say what the fuck are you buying an electric car for?
    He says no,no It’s not mine It’s my boy’s
    This goes along with the sons Porche and motorcycle.
    I ask him as i have before who the hell does your son work for (he’s an engineer).
    He tells me Walmart!

  13. Alexb,


    TOVICO SOCIAL CLUB – ita a restaurant.

    That is the place were the serious money goes for lunches. about $80-100 per person. Its not fancy Fu Fu WOP DINING. Check out some pics on line.

    100% authentic (Owner Riccardo From Italy) makes southern Italian food WITHOUT the bullshit.

    NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT IT. The 5 Families that Own & Build most of Vaughan go there regularly. It’s not one of THOSE places. Just very traditional with Olde World Dishes if you ever get there.

    You will recognize me if I’m there as the ONLY guy in BLUE COLLAR & dirty.


  14. Switch the skin colors and you’ll have riots in the streets and speeches on the House floor about this.
    But since the attacker is of the approved skin color, this is brave or should just be ignored, otherwise shut racist.
