Iowa State Athletics Director Jamie Pollard has issued a response to a district court judge’s ruling that waives Bubu Palo’s ban from participating with the Iowa State men’s basketball team.
“We are disappointed to learn of the district court judge’s decision to reinstate Bubu Palo to our basketball team,” Pollard said. “We believe the university should have the sole right and responsibility to determine any student’s participation in extracurricular activities at Iowa State University.”
Players deflected questions about the case to Coach Hoiberg during a news conference Thursday afternoon. Coach Fred Hoiberg continuously said it was too early to comment on the case.
