Jackson State University officials released a statement on the incident Tuesday morning.

“The conduct of a few of our student-athletes at the conclusion of last night’s game at Prairie View A&M is unacceptable and not reflective of who we are,” said Vice President and Director of Athletics Ashley Robinson. “Coach (Wayne) Brent and I will review the incident, along with the Southwestern Athletic Conference and Prairie View A&M to determine appropriate consequences. There is no place for this conduct in college athletics or here at Jackson State.”
