A "large fight" broke out at the varsity boys high school basketball game between South Haven and Paw Paw on Friday night, police said.

After a foul at the end of the court, players started shoving each other. This prompted players from both benches to enter the court, and bystanders also came out to either join the fight or try to break it up, police said. 

The South Haven Police Department estimates about 70 people were involved in the fight. 

"The altercation however, lasted a short time before being dispersed," a release said. 

Even though the fight didn't last long, it did cause the game to be cancelled by officials before the second quarter started. 

Multiple departments responded to assist South Haven Police including the Van Buren County Sheriff's Department, Michigan State Police and Covert Township Police. 

Police said there have been no reported injuries so far, and the incident is being investigated by police and school officials. They said that any disciplinary action or criminal charges are pending will video evidence and all witness statements are obtained.
