NDSU addresses security at basketball games following IUPUI complaintFARGO - North Dakota State said it will probably station a police officer behind the opposing team’s bench for all basketball games following a complaint of rude fan behavior at the Bison-IUPUI men’s game Thursday night
Bison athletic director Gene Taylor said three Bison fans were responsible for riding the Jaguars team in the course of the IUPUI’s 66-52 win at the Bison Sports Arena. IUPUI head coach Ron Hunter said some of the comments had a racial tone.
Taylor said NDSU normally has an enforcement officer behind the opposing team’s bench for the more well-attended games like South Dakota State, Oakland University (Mich.) or Oral Roberts. There were plenty of empty seats Thursday behind the IUPUI bench.
