ESPN analyst Barry Booker condemned for 'scantily clad girls' comment

The Southeastern Conference and SEC Network issued statements Sunday condemning offensive comments made by college basketball analyst Barry Booker during a Saturday telecast. 

Booker was commentating on an SEC Network game between Missouri and Arkansas. After a promotion for upcoming SEC gymnastics meets during the game coverage, Booker described the female gymnasts. 

“Go hang out with the ladies,” Booker began, “I mean, I want to go see some scantily clad girls.” 

Fellow announcer Richard Cross then noted that gymnastics meets have “one of the great family atmospheres that you will find in all of college athletics.” Booker continued that he’d be watching the meets from his hotel room in an attempt to promote SEC gymnastics.
