CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) - A Southern California women's basketball player says fans directed racial slurs at her and her black teammates as they left the court following a loss at Oregon State on Sunday night.

USC player Minyon Moore sent tweets about the derogatory remarks after the game, though she quickly deleted them.

Both schools say they are investigating.

"There is no place at Oregon State University - nor do we believe in intercollegiate athletics - for racially derogatory actions or statements that are directed at student-athletes, coaches, officials or fans in attendance," Oregon State spokesman Steve Clark said in a statement to The Associated Press on Sunday night.

Clark said that Oregon State was in contact with USC officials and "have communicated our efforts to investigate this matter immediately."

"Both schools strongly agree that there is no place for such racially insensitive language in sports," USC senior woman administrator Donna Heinel said in a statement provided to the AP. "And we appreciate Oregon State and the Pac-12's immediate dedication to investigating this incident and their efforts to ensure that our collective values of respect and inclusion are upheld."

Oregon State won 69-63.
