Men's basketball teams from several U.S. universities, including Oregon State, Clemson and Arizona, were in Barcelona, Spain, when a van drove into pedestrians Thursday in a historic district popular with tourists but school officials said the players and staff were safe.
Oregon State coach Wayne Tinkle posted a somber video to social media that conveyed the gravity of what had taken place just outside the Beavers' team hotel. Players were sharing a meal before an exhibition game when the incident occurred, about 5 p.m. local time, he said.
"People, mad scramble, a car/van driving through," Tinkle said. "Literally looking out the window, we won't show you the pictures, but some horrific sights."
