California basketball coach Mark Madsen has reported that player Fardaws Aimaq was subjected to offensive comments, including being called a terrorist, by a heckling fan after a recent game.

An investigation has been initiated by SoCal Challenge officials, and security has been briefed to enforce policies against derogatory comments or intimidating actions by fans.

“Throughout and after Monday’s game, Fardaws Aimaq was allegedly subjected to abhorrent and offensive comments from a fan, including being called a terrorist,” said Aimaq’s coach Mark Madsen.

“I have asked the SoCal Challenge tournament director that a formal investigation be conducted and that this fan be barred from the premises,” he added.

Madnsen told reporters, “Fardaws and I had an important conversation (Wednesday) about how he needs to maintain his composure regardless of what takes place in a game or what is said to him directly.”

“I am disturbed that Fardaws was allegedly on the receiving end of such language, and I’m disappointed that he confronted this fan in the stands,” admitted the coach.

“Fardaws understands my expectations for how he as a student-athlete conducts himself,” explained Madsen.

Adding, “The consequences related to this situation will be managed internally.”

Aimaq, a standout player for Cal, has been averaging 17.2 points and 9.7 rebounds in his first season.

The incident occurred after a game against UTEP, and Cal is set to play San Diego State on Saturday.
