Tensions rose at a high school basketball game Wednesday evening as New Miami students and parents flung racial slurs at Oyler High School athletes, Oyler students and coaches say.

The game was called early after a New Miami student was injured in a hard foul by an Oyler player.

New Miami officials say they're investigating what happened, as are officials from Cincinnati Public Schools.

Mason Ford, uncle to Oyler player Izaiah Cathey, wrote about the game on Facebook late Thursday evening. The post had over 200 shares and more than 100 other interactions as of 4:30 p.m. Friday.

"Throughout the game(...) the athletes, the students and the parents in attendance from New Miami consistently yelled slurs at the literal children playing for Oyler. Calling them 'N------', 'Slaves,' 'Inner city trash,' and I'm sure much more," Ford wrote.
