You'd think the WNBA would be desperate for spectators -- but a player on the L.A. Sparks wants one fan to stay the hell away ... and she's asking for a restraining order to make sure that happens.
Sparks center Jantel Lavender filed the request for a restraining order last week -- asking a judge to keep her ex-boyfriend Adam Ashley at least 50 yards away from her and her family at all times ... including games.
According to the docs, Adam attended a recent Sparks game and followed Jantel home -- where the two got into a screaming match and Adam attempted to punch her.
The fight went on all night -- and Jantel claims she eventually called the police to kick Adam out. Jantel claims she had to call the police AGAIN the next day -- when Adam came back to continue his "angry rampage."
A judge will decide whether to grant the restraining order on September 6.
