Transcript for Youth Basketball Team Disqualified Because of Girl on Roster
A youth basketball team is crying foul after getting kicked out of a national tournament. All because there is a girl on the team. That decision creating an uproar. We have more now from ABC's Steve osunsami. Reporter: This morning, a show of solidarity, a team of 11 boys wearing pink uniforms in silent protest after being forced out of a basketball tournament because of the one girl on their team. You're taking away from the kids that worked so hard the whole year to get to this point. Reporter: The charlottesville cavaliers were forced to leave the tournament in South Carolina after their coach decided to put 10-year-old kymora Johnson in the game. They had just won five games in a row and looked like they were going to win the whole thing over the weekend but then they were disqualified. Officials citing new rules saying that girls can no longer play in the boys' tournament. I think it's crazy because if you're good enough you should be able to play. Reporter: Kymora has played with her team in this tournament for three years in a row and the coaches say they did not know about the rule change. The coach did know, they say, even acknowledging the rule changes before the team check-in process before any games were played and point out that girls have their own teams but the team is vowing to fight saying they might even explore legal recourse. We're looking at all our options right now and trust me, it's not over. Reporter: For "Good morning America," Steve osunsami, ABC news, Atlanta.
