IHSA still investigating 2A championship game, where team refused second-place trophy
Saturday's Class 2A state final basketball game in which Harrisburg defeated Seton Academy 50-44 was so hostile the IHSA threatened to cancel it at halftime, and 4 days later hard feelings continue to fester.
Seton assistant coach Art Kimber and some parents from the South Holland school claim that at least one Harrisburg player used racial slurs on the court. Harrisburg administrators deny that and say they are being portrayed unfairly as racists.
Meanwhile, multiple sources said Seton head coach Brandon Thomas, who has been roundly criticized as a poor sport for leading his team off the floor before it could receive the second-place trophy, has been placed on leave as administrators investigate the circumstances around the game.
