Following Wednesday night’s win over Utah State, Boise State senior forward Nick Duncan turned to the Aggies student section and showed them the middle finger.

Duncan has since apologized for his actions and will not face any further punishment.
On Thursday, Duncan issued a statement apologizing to his coaches and teammates, while also acknowledging he needs to be a better role model for young fans.
“I apologize for my actions at the end of last night’s game,” Duncan said. “I pride myself on being above all of the noise I hear when we go on the road, but last night I let it get the best of me. I need to be better than that.
“I apologize to my teammates and coaches for taking any attention away from what we accomplished on the court, and to our young fans for setting a poor example of sportsmanship. I look forward to my remaining opportunities to represent Boise State University and make Bronco Nation proud.”
