Buffalo, NY – The Rutgers University women's basketball team says they want to ask radio host Don Imus why he used racially insulting terms about them on his show last week.

In Buffalo, the co-founders of Uncrowned Queens says Imus has sent a "horrible" message to African American woman and all females. Dr. Peggy Brooks-Bertram and Dr. Barbara Seals Nevergold of the Uncrowned Queens shared their reaction with WBFO News.
