After being involved in her second nose breaking incident on the court in this season German prosecution is now investigating against U.S. import Sherida Triggs (185-F-85, college: ODU) because of criminal assault! Giving this story a little interesting twist is the fact that in both games the referees did not call for a foul! Since video reviewing is not allowed in the regulations of the DBBL the league itself did not/could not react in both cases. But at least the second incident will now be reviewed by the law enforcement authority due to Lejla Betics demand for penalty at the prosecution as her club the Halle Lions announced in a press release earlier this week. While the Marburg club officials belief in an accident the incident is seen as a willful attack from Triggs on Bejtic in Halle. The injured player is quoted in the local Halle newspaper: 'it is important to me to show that you cannot play Basketball like Sherida Triggs is doing.'
To find out hinmself what has happened the author reviewed both games on video and describes both incidents from his perspective:
On game day one on September 27th 2009 Marburg played against 1.DBBL newcomer Opladen. Two minutes before the end of the game Sherida Triggs and her opponent Mareike Nettersheim (186-C) are battling for the rebound. Triggs gets the ball but Nettersheim reaches in from behind to steal the ball. To get rid of her Triggs hammers her elbow right in the face of Nettersheim who suffered a broken nose and a broken maxillary antrum in this sequence that needed to be fixed in two surgeries. Mareike Nettersheim was out for more than a month and missed the following five games after this incident.
On February 6th 2010 Marburg played in Halle. The second half of the game had just started as Lejla Bejtic (174-F-85) was running by Sherida Triggs in order to follow her cutting opponent Margret Skuballa she was defending. In the moment Bejtic is right next to her, Triggs extends her elbow out and hits Bejtic in the face who suffered a broken nose that needed to be fixed in a surgery. She was out for 10 days, missed one game and is now playing with a Rip Hamilton mask.
The German prosecution has already started to investigate hearing witnesses and reviewing the video sequences. Eurobasket will keep on reporting in this case.
