University of South Carolina cancels games with BYU amid alleged racist slur incident with Duke

Sep 3, 2022

The recent alleged Duke-BYU women's volleyball incident is now affecting basketball season, which doesn't start for practically another three months.

The South Carolina University women's basketball team canceled two games - one this year and one next - against BYU in response to the alleged incident.

Duke's Rachel Robinson claimed that a fan subjected her and her Black teammates to racial slurs "throughout the entirety of the match" against BYU.

However, the claim has received pushback from witnesses who say they "heard absolutely nothing."

Despite the conflicting reports, Gamecocks head coach Dawn Staley is comfortable with her decision.
