Trojans suspended after Spokane bar fight

Spokane police are investigating claims from witnesses who said two players on the USC men’s basketball team were involved in a brawl at a downtown bar early Sunday morning.

The Trojans were staying in Spokane following a loss to Washington State in Saturday’s regular-season finale.

Citing reports, the Orange County Register is reporting USC’s 7-1 senior James Blasczyk and 7-foot junior Dewayne Dedmon were involved in the fight. One account says Blasczyk was a victim while the OC Register reports other witnesses put the blame on the players.

Updated: 12:31 p.m.

USC indenfintely suspended Blaszyk and Dedmon.

In a statement released by the school, coach Bob Cantu said: “Separately, we are aware of the Spokane investigation into an alleged incident involving those players and we are cooperating with the authorities to determine the facts. Until we learn all the facts, it would be inappropriate to comment further.”
