The basketball mom, who was captured on video last year ordering her daughter to punch an opponent, has been punished.
The daughter of former NBA player Corey Benjamin went viral when she was filmed sucker-punching an opponent during a youth basketball game last year.
The mother, Tira Hunt, was seen yelling “you better hit her for that”, which led to her daughter striking the girl.
