F&M student protest causes basketball game to be canceled

Lancaster

LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) — Franklin & Marshall’s Friday night basketball game against York College was canceled after only about 10 minutes due to a student protest.

Dozens of students sat on the court, demanding the game be canceled. Protestors cheered after it was called off.

This is the second protest following yesterday’s news of F&M student-athletes having worn racially insensitive costumes during Halloween.

Another protest is planned for Saturday while the college holds an open house.
