A New York state college cheerleader was seen storming off a basketball court during a NCAA game after an opposing team’s player allegedly yelled ‘disgusting slurs’ at her, telling her to ‘shut the f**k up b*itch’. 

Hannah Koning, who is a member of the cheerleading squad at St. Bonaventure University, was dragged into an on-court quarrel with freshman guard Jordan Nesbitt, of the Saint Louis men’s basketball team, during the Atlantic 10 men’s basketball tournament last Friday.  

A dramatic moment of the incident’s footage shows the cheerleader walking away from St Louis fans, who were allegedly taunting her. While another woman, believed to be Koning’s coach, was seen talking to what appears to be a security guard on the court. 

It’s unclear what was exchanged during the heat of the moment, due to the noise inside the stadium.

After the 57-56 victory for St Louis, Koning went on Twitter to respond to the clip shared by a SportsBlogs Nation (SB Nation) affiliated account, called Mid-Major Madness, confirming that a Billikens player hurled foul slurs at her.

‘This was after he looked me dead in the eyes, an innocent cheerleader, and told me to ‘shut the f**k up, b**ch’ embarrassing,’ Koning’s reply read.

Nesbitt, who is currently average 8.2 points this season on a 39.5 percent field goal percentage, has not commented on the claim, and has not been disciplined over the allegations.

Koning, of Jamestown, frequently tweets about college sports on her profile and has ‘Bonas Cheer’ included in her Instagram bio.

On Friday, Mid-Major Madness originally tweeted that Nesbitt, who is six foot and six inches tall and weighs 180 pounds (approximately 82kg) ‘had been chirping the Bonaventure cheerleaders all game, calling them disgusting names.’ 

The Twitter account later added how ‘he came up at the end of the game and said some more. He came up at the end and said some more. There’s zero room in the game for that. Nasty.’ 

Koning also re-posted a tweet from a fellow cheerleading teammate, claiming that ‘nothing gets done’ after Nesbitt started in St Louis’ next game against Davidson University on Saturday. The tweet, shared by @madison_m25, also slams St Louis University as ‘so embarrassing’.

In Friday’s win for St Louis, Nesbitt only had five rebounds in 34 minutes of action, without registering a single point on the board for his team.  

The team was eliminated on Saturday following a 89-64 semi-final loss against Davidson. 

DailyMail.com has contacted Saint Louis University’s athletic department, but has not yet received a response to its request for comment.

On Sunday, Richmond defeated Davidson 64–62 in the Atlantic-10 title game to steal a bid to the NCAA’s March Madness tournament, where they face Iowa on Wednesday.
