The Finnish league team Tapiolan Honka showed zero tolerance for the behavior of their American forward Shanel Harrision who was kicked off the team today for sucker punching an opposing player during a game this weekend.  The team didn’t even wait for a league announcement on her punishment.

The player she punched was Niina Laaksonen.  Niina and Shanel were going at it for the entire game and combined for five fouls against each other before the punch happened with 3 minutes left in the game.

Shanel played college basketball at La Salle and Virginia Tech.
