SPOKANE, Wash. —

A group of Gonzaga students promoted sportsmanship at Thursday night's basketball game against BYU with a "Take the Hate Out of Hoops" campaign against Mormon slurs.

The campaign included handing out bracelets with the "Take the Hate Out of Hoops" message.

KREM reports ( http://is.gd/pVO5Jc) the campaign was created by students from a Hate Studies class who organized to fight offensive comments some students posted about the Mormon religion after an earlier game against BYU.

A Facebook page that encouraged students to make fun of BYU was recently deleted.
