racial slurs,

After calling a Duke volleyball player 

a Brigham Young supporter was banned.

According to Brigham Young University, a fan who hurled racist slurs at a Duke volleyball player during their match on Friday in Provo, Utah, has been banned.

Although the fan sat in the student section, BYU claims they were not students. In a statement Saturday afternoon, the school expressed its regrets to Duke and its student-athletes.

In its statement, BYU did not disclose how long the fan was banned for. 

Duke issued its own statement shortly afterwards in an email to USA TODAY Sports.
