Imagine a mom telling her daughter to “go and hit” another player at a youth basketball game? That allegedly happened in Garden Grove recently at a youth basketball game.
Lauryn Ham, a 15-year-old, was sucker punched by another player, from Los Angeles, whose father is allegedly a former NBA player. Ham had been guarding that player prior to the sudden and vicious attack.
Witnesses heard the attacker’s mom telling her daughter to go hit Ham. And she did!
The attack left Ham with a with a bruised neck and a concussion.
Ham plays for a club team called the “SoCal Blaze.” Her attacker plays for the Dream Academy.
Neither the attacker, or her mother, have apologized.
The Garden Grove Police Department is investigating the attack but at this time charges have not been filed.
