MONTGOMERY, AL (WTVM)  - Eleven juveniles are now facing multiple charges following Tuesday's fight that occurred during the Carver High School-Valley High School basketball game. 

A spokesman for Alabama State University says the charges include assault, mischief, disorderly conduct, inciting a riot, and failure to disperse. 

Our news partner, WSFA, was covering the high school game between Montgomery's Carver High and Valley High, when a massive fight broke out at around 5:00 p.m. eastern at Alabama State University. 

We're told no one was seriously hurt, but at least one spectator claims an on-court shove by a Valley player started it all.

The campus was host to a high school basketball tournament involving teams across the southeast.

Roughly 3,000 spectators watched as players and young fans scrambled across the floor punching and throwing each other to the ground.

The brawl remains under investigation by Alabama State High School Athletic Association.
