Officials Investigating After Cal's Fardaws Aimaq Allegedly Called 'Terrorist' by Fan

Officials at the SoCal Challenge basketball tournament are investigating the situation after a fan allegedly called Cal forward Fardaws Aimaq a "terrorist," per ESPN's Myron Medcalf.

The incident in question allegedly happened during Monday's game between the Golden Bears and UTEP.

Medcalf noted a video shows Aimaq approaching someone in the crowd at the tournament in San Juan Capistrano and pointing at him as he engages. Cal head coach Mark Madsen asked for tournament officials to investigate because derogatory language was used.

Aimaq is the son of Afghan refugees, who settled in Canada after fleeing the Soviet-Afghan War.
