New Miami says no racial slurs used at Oyler basketball game

New Miami Local Schools says its students and parents did not use racial slurs during a basketball game at the Butler County school with Oyler High School that ended early Jan. 13.

The game was called during the third quarter after a New Miami player was injured by a hard foul from an Oyler player, officials said. No further physical altercations ensued.

New Miami says it conducted an investigation "after social media postings from individuals who were not at the game alleged that New Miami spectators and athletes used racial slurs and made inflammatory comments."

An Oyler coach and player at the game told The Enquirer they heard offensive language and saw disturbing gestures from the New Miami community "the second we walked into the gym" that day.
