(OutKick) The Memphis women’s basketball player who was caught sucker-punching a Bowling Green player going through the teams’ handshake line on Thursday night has officially been charged with assault.

Following Bowling Green State’s 73-60 win over the Tigers in the women’s NIT game, Memphis fifth-year senior Jamirah Shutes was seen exchanging words with BGSU’s Elissa Brett. Shutes then threw a punch which resulted in Brett hitting the floor and Memphis staff having to pull Shutes out of the fray.

Shortly after the incident occurred, Bowling Green announced that university police were investigating the matter.

On Friday afternoon, Bowling Green athletics announced that the university police department “has charged a member of the Memphis Women’s basketball team with assault.”

While the statement does not name Shutes by name, it’s safe to allege that she is the player the police are referring to.
