Questions Remain Unanswered After Anti-Gay Harassment Of Basketball Player Dalton Maldonado

A week after Outsports posted the story of gay Kentucky basketball player Dalton Maldonado, questions still swirl around the incident that forced the high school senior out of the closet.

As we reported earlier, Maldonado was called a gay slur by an opposing player after a December basketball game during a Christmas tournament hosted by Lexington Catholic. The offending Bryan Station High School team then allegedly pounded on the bus of Maldonado's Betsy Layne High School team and pursued the bus in their cars when it pulled away from the school, all the while yelling gay slurs at Maldonado.
