Michigan basketball knocked off archrival Ohio State this week, 65-49.
The result certainly wasn’t what Buckeye fans wanted, nor was the alleged treatment by the Wolverine fans in Ann Arbor.
After the game, the mother of Ohio State’s Kaleb and Andre Wesson chastised the Michigan fans for their conduct during the game:
“I have NEVER seen more disrespectful student section than Michigan. WOW spitting, cussing, throw foam lights at the guest team. Horrible and the administration allows this type of behavior. This is the second year in a row that I have witnessed this,” she tweeted.
According to those at the Crisler Center, loud “F— Ohio” chants were audible during the game.
Michigan head coach John Beilein addressed the allegations from the Ohio State game during a recent media session.
Beilein didn’t outright deny things, but says he didn’t hear the chants.
“I didn’t hear about that. I’m hoping what we’re saying is not what some people may think they’re saying,” Beilein said. “I’m not sure what it is, but we’re gonna have to deal with that next time. As you know, I don’t pay a lot of attention to the crowd. When I heard more about it, I thought they were saying something else. I thought they were saying – something else. I’m not dwelling on what they were saying, but if it’s true, we’re gonna clean that up.”
Michigan is in Iowa tonight, while Ohio State—losers of six of its last seven games—plays a hot Rutgers team tomorrow.
