Renardo Sidney's odyssey at Mississippi State might have hit the point of no return late Thursday night.
Hours after returning from a one-game suspension, when Sidney scored 19 points in 19 minutes in a victory over San Diego, ESPN cameras caught a fight between Sidney and MSU teammate Elgin Bailey during a game between Utah and Hawaii
Sidney had been suspended for State's first game of the tournament after an on-court altercation during the Bulldogs' practice Tuesday. Sidney spent the bulk of the last two seasons dealing with an NCAA investigation and a subsequent suspension. He did not play during the 2009-10 season.
ESPN commentator Doug Gottlieb said he believes this is "the end" for Sidney while cameras showed footage of the fight with Bailey. MSU athletic director Scott Stricklin told the Clarion-Ledger the incident was "disappointing" and that the school was still gathering information on what happened.
Never miss a local story.
MSU assistant coach Marcus Grant broke up the fight between Sidney and Bailey. The Bulldogs are scheduled to play again on Christmas Day.
