A University of Jamestown hockey player is in hot water for allegedly racially taunting a player from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
A video shows some Jamestown players in orange on the bench talking to someone off-camera when a Las Vegas player in white skates over and a fight ensues.
UNLV released a statement claiming that a UJ player directed "racial taunts" at one of their players, D'Andre John, during the game.
"I would like to apologize on the behalf of myself, my staff and UJ hockey to a UNLV player for any comments said throughout Thursday night," UJ head coach Cole Bell said. "It's not something he should have to deal with coming to play a game in Jamestown or anywhere and we apologize for that situation. He had every right to be upset."
"...we are going to call their head coach and their student-athlete and apologize. The department embraces and adheres to the values of our institution which include diversity and fair play, and expect our athletes to conduct themselves accordingly," said University of Jamestown Athletic Director Sean Johnson.
