Torian Graham flips off Arizona student section (Video)
Arizona State senior guard Torian Graham has apologized for flipping off opposing fans prior to Thursday’s game against rival Arizona.
When teams from Arizona and Arizona State meet, regardless of the sport, it’s generally a big deal. On Thursday, the men’s basketball teams faced each other, and Graham got the Wildcats’ student section fired up before the game.
As Graham headed to the tunnel back to the locker room after warm-ups, he gave a group of Arizona students a double middle finger salute.
His inappropriate actions were captured on video by ABC 15’s Shane Dale.
