The scuffle was “heat-of-the-moment stuff,” a source described to ESPN.
After the game, the club held a lengthy meeting in a closed locker room. Memphis coach J.B. Bickerstaff took more than 30 minutes to emerge and address the media.
“A conversation that needed to be had that will stay between those of us that were in that locker room,” Bickerstaff said about the session.
Wednesday’s loss was the 10th game that Memphis (18-19) has dropped in its past 13 contests.
The Athletic first reported the altercation between the two players.
