Wake Forest held out players from the final of the Wooden Legacy tournament in Anaheim, California, against No. 14 Arizona on Sunday because they "may have behaved in a manner that does not reflect the standards and values of Wake Forest Basketball and our University," according to a statement from head coach Danny Manning.
"Wake Forest takes these matters very seriously and is reviewing the situation. I'm sad that we're in this situation, but the players in question will not participate in tonight's game," the statement read.
Although Manning didn't specify the issue, his statement comes after a Disneyland employee, in a letter directed to Manning that she shared on Twitter, accused four Wake Forest players of rude behavior with offensive language while they were at the theme park on Saturday. Language from one player allegedly included a gay slur directed at another employee.
