Police in Spokane, Wash., are investigating a fight that witnesses said might have involved USC basketball players, a Spokane police official confirmed.
USC concluded its regular season Saturday afternoon with a 76-51 loss to Washington State at Pullman, Wash. The Trojans stayed the night in Spokane and flew home Sunday.
Monique Cotton, communications director for the Spokane police, said that 10 to 12 officers responded to a call about a large fight in downtown Spokane about 2 a.m. Sunday. Officers found 20 to 30 people involved in a fight that had apparently begun at one location and continued at another, Cotton said.
“Witnesses told us that they believe that it was USC basketball players that were involved,” Cotton said, “but we are still in the very preliminary portion of our investigation.”
