SALT LAKE CITY – The College of Southern Idaho announced the termination of its men’s basketball play-by-play announcer after he made a disparaging comment towards a Salt Lake Community College men’s basketball player.

CSI shared the news on Thursday, February 17.

The broadcaster’s remark took place during a game between the Golden Eagles and the Bruins.

According to Idaho’s KMVT, the announcer called a SLCC player a “thug” after a foul during the contest.

College of Southern Idaho athletic director Joel Bate released the following statement regarding the termination:

“The College of Southern Idaho and the CSI Athletic Department want to apologize to the Salt Lake Community College players, coaches, and fans for the comments made during the broadcast. CSI does not condone and will not tolerate these types of remarks. They do not reflect our values as an institution of higher education or as a member of the National Junior College Athletic Association. We have the utmost respect for the SLCC Athletic Department and for their student-athletes.”

CSI held off SLCC for a 74-70 win.

It was Salt Lake Community College’s first loss of the season. The defeat dropped the Bruins’ record to 28-1 this season, including 17-1 in conference action.

SLCC’s next game is at home against Colorado Northwestern Community College on Saturday, February 18 at 3 p.m. (MDT).
