Arizona State guard Torian Graham gave Arizona Wildcats fans the middle finger salute.
After the game, Graham was not made available to the media, but he acknowledged and apologized for the incident in a since deleted tweet.
Graham says that his actions were prompted by racial slurs from Wildcats fans.
“I apologies for my actions, there was racial slurs said, and I didn’t react the right way as I should,” Graham wrote on Twitter before deleting the message. “My apologies to the ASU program.”
ESPN’s Myron Medcalf reports a team spokesperson says the program is investigating the claims.
