Here’s what Bryan Hanks said as spokesperson of organizers

According to Recent Times, Bryan Hanks explained the situation on the behalf of organizers. Hanks said, “The conflict happened during a game between Farmville Central and Kissimmee, Florida’s Life Christian Academy. When the conflict began, the security had already been stretched thin due to a prior fight that occurred among players from Southern California Academy of Castaic, California, and Moravian Prep from Hudson, North Carolina.”

Later he added, “The deployment of tear gas created an unsafe situation for players in the Farmville Central and Life Christian game prompting the tournament to reschedule the game to Thursday morning, on December 30.”

The tournament was postponed till Thursday Morning for the final game, in the video, we can clearly see how fans break in during the finals and spoil the game of basketball for the players and fans who came just to cheer for their team.
