PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -Providence College will beef up security at its men's basketball games after the brother of a player walked onto the court to confront a referee last weekend.
The college said Wednesday that uniformed Providence police officers will be positioned near team benches during games at the Dunkin' Donuts Center. More security guards also will be used.
The announcement came four days after Jonathan Xavier, the brother of Providence guard Jeff Xavier, came onto the court during the second half of Saturday's game against Marquette. He was upset no foul was called after his brother was scraped in the face.
Providence athletic director Bob Driscoll said the college was disappointed and embarrassed by the incident. Marquette won the game 91-82.
