Eric Musselman issues statement apologizing for conduct after Arkansas-San Diego State game
Eric Musselman has apologized for his role in a scuffle that took place after Arkansas defeated San Diego State on Wednesday.
The Razorbacks defeated the Aztecs 78-74 in a tightly-contested Maui Invitational game. After the game, Musselman reportedly flashed an “L” sign and yelled “Go f— yourself” to Aztec fans. This led to Aztec fans storming the court trying to reach Razorback players.

Musselman issued the following apology after the incident:
We recently played a highly contested and emotional game against an exceptional San Diego State team. Shortly after the game, I and some members of our program responded with negative dialogue to a few San Diego State fans. I want to take this opportunity to apologize to the San Diego State community and especially to head coach Brian Dutcher, his staff, their excellent team, and their enthusiastic fans for this post-game interaction. We highly value, appreciate and respect our participation in the 2022 Maui Classic.
Arkansas will welcome Troy to Fayetteville on Monday.
