The Southern vs. Texas Southern rivalry is very real

Time to come clean: we were so overwhelmed with conference tournament stuff last night that we missed the greatest rivalry in the SWAC: Southern vs. Texas Southern.

By now we know that this is not something we should ignore, and those two teams reminded us of that. This here video enters our lives from WAFB reporter Jacques Doucet, who captured and tweeted out a hell of a moment during an altercation between Trayvon Reed (Texas Southern) and Mubashar Ali (Southern). Reed does not hold back:

UPDATE: We got another angle on this and you can see how this began a little clearer. Ali appears to head-butt Reed, which leads to the punch:

As Doucet notes, both players were ejected. Watch the video, then tag yourself. I’m headphones man trying to restore order.

Texas Southern held on to win, 90-88, by the way.
