BU Hockey Reevaluating ‘Culture’ After Second Player Arrested For Sex Charges
Sports Fan Insider
(WSCR)In the wake of the second arrest in 10 weeks of a Boston University hockey player for sexual assault allegations involving a female student, the school’s president said the team is reevaluating its “culture and climate.”
The latest arrest came from 21-year-old Max Nicastro, the team’s star defense man, who was arrested earlier in the week for allegedly raping a female student.
Senior forward Corey Trivino, the team’s leading scorer, was arrested in December after he allegedly broke into a female resident assistant’s room three times while intoxicated, demanding to sleep in her bed.
The incidents prompted a statement from BU president Robert A. Brown emailed to all students and posted to the school’s website in which he said, “The charges in these cases understandably lead to questions about whether the hockey team’s culture and climate have contributed in some way to the actions of the two individuals. The University must address these questions and, if deficiencies are identified, make appropriate and necessary changes.”
