Louis Orr Hate Crime: Bowling Green Basketball Coach's Property Defaced With Racist Graffiti


Vandals scrawled racist graffiti, including "white power" and a swastika, this weekend in front of the home of Bowling Green State University basketball coach Louis Orr, who is black, according to the Toledo Blade.

Police are treating the event as a hate crime but say the crime is isolated and doesn't pose a threat to Orr's wellbeing.

Orr, through a university spokesman, declined to comment.

A CBS Sports NCAA basketball blog asks, "Was it coincidence that this happened on his property, or is some dunce trying to send a message because he's angry about the basketball team?"

According to the university's website, Orr, a Syracuse standout and Cincinnati native, has a career record of 176-162. He's 76-82 with the BGSU Falcons.
