SYRACUSE, N.Y. - This year's Orange Madness basketball event will take place without musical artist Ace Hood.
Pete Moore, Syracuse University's Director of Athletic Communications made the announcement Sunday, saying they want to ensure the event is family friendly.
Moore said "After a review of the overall program, we share concerns about the appropriateness of the act. Although he is popular with many, we respectfully have decided to not include this performance in the Orange Madness festivities."
Police ended the "Orange Madness" event a half an hour early last year, due to a number of fights breaking out during the event.
A man was even taken to the hospital he was stabbed.
