Police and the FBI are investigating racial harassment allegations in Coeur d'Alene after an incident reported by basketball players and staff from the University of Utah.

The team was in the city as part of the NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament in Spokane.

The story gained traction this week and is now making national news. Troy Oppie, reporter and host of All Things Considered, joined Idaho Matters to tell us more.
