(ESPN & AP) A man was stabbed at Syracuse University's Carrier Dome on Friday night during the men's basketball team's Orange Madness event, the Syracuse Post-Standard reported.
The 25-year-old victim was in stable condition when he was taken to Upstate University Hospital, Syracuse police Sgt. Tom Connellan told the Post-Standard. Those involved in this fight -- and others that occurred during the event -- were not affiliated with the school, according to Connellan.
The stabbing took place around 9:30 p.m. near the concession stands in the Dome, and the event was subsequently ended about a half-hour early by university officials.
"We were saddened to learn of the incident at the Dome last night," Syracuse chancellor Nancy Cantor and athletic director Daryl Gross said in a statement. "There is no place and no tolerance for anything like this, and future Orange Madness events will be designed to prevent incidents such as this. We are proud of the terrific partnership among Syracuse City Police, SU Department of Public Safety, and Carrier Dome security staff, and we are confident that their work will continue to maintain a safe and secure environment for our patrons who come to the Dome to enjoy the hard work and efforts of our student-athletes."
