Pacific athletic director Ted Leland said he likely won’t file a report with the Southland Conference regarding Monday’s situation in which a Pacific fan was asked to leave at halftime of the Pacific-Oral Roberts men’s basketball game at Spanos Center.

Dick McClure, a Pacific alum and longtime booster, was booted for the first time in his 40 or so years attending Pacific games because the officiating crew, which commonly works Southland Conference games, objected to his comments before the game and during the first half.

Todd Lamb, associate commissioner of communications with the Southland Conference, said he first learned of the ejection when he listened to a voice mail left by The Record on Tuesday with the conference office in Plano, Texas. Lamb said in cases when fans are ejected, the affected party, in this case Pacific, files a report. He said he had not received a report and could not comment on the officials. Based on what Leland said Tuesday, it looks like Pacific is moving forward, and McClure has said he will continue to attend games and help support the program.

So, no harm, no foul.
