George Mason Issues Apology to VCU

From the desk of George Mason Athletic Director Tom O’Connor:

“On behalf of George Mason University, we apologize for the inappropriate behavior by our men’s basketball team before the game versus VCU on Saturday. Our team took the court for pre-game warm-ups prematurely during the senior night presentation for the Rams’ Bradford Burgess. Our players’ behavior was discourteous and showed a lack of respect for Bradford and his family, and for the VCU team and community. I have personally expressed our apologies to Athletic Director Norwood Teague and with his consent have attempted and will continue to reach out to the Burgess family. George Mason University and our athletic program hold dearly the concept of sportsmanship and respect, and our players understand that we did not exemplify these values during the presentation to Bradford.”
