Big East will not take further action on St. John's-Notre Dame fight

Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

Sir'Dominic Pointer and Cameron Biedscheid turned smack talk into a physical altercation on Tuesday night.

The fight that broke out between Sir`Dominic Pointer of St. John's and Cameron Biedscheid of Notre Dame on Tuesday night was ugly and uncalled for.

The Big East Conference, by way of Associate Commissioner John Paquette, announced on Wednesday that it will not take any further action on the incident. The two players have been automatically suspended for one game by the NCAA.

Pointer and Biedscheid got physical, each delivering punch attempts at one another, as Notre Dame was pulling senior forward Jack Cooley off the floor for a final standing ovation from the Purcell Pavilion crowd.

Before the altercation, Pointer had scored seven points, pulled down 12 rebounds, and grabbed four steals. The Red Storm will miss his rounded contributions on both ends of the floor when they welcome the superior Marquette Golden Eagles on Saturday.

"Dom apologized for losing his composure and will serve his penalty by missing the final game against Marquette," the team released in a statement. "We have to demonstrate more maturity than we did [Tuesday]. We want to play with intensity but also use intelligence in order to play a winning brand of basketball."

The incident ironically came just days after St. John's suspended its leading-scorer in D`Angelo Harrison for conduct detrimental to the team. Harrison plans to return to the Red Storm, and so will Pointer. But it is evident that the youthful Johnnies have plenty of maturing to do.
