Oregon State men's basketball announcer Mike Parker said Sunday that he was attacked while walking through Indianapolis on Saturday prior to the Oregon State Beavers' 65-58 win over the Loyola-Chicago Ramblers in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament.
According to Nick Daschel of The Oregonian, Parker said a man attacked him on Canal Walk downtown, leaving him with a torn shirt and abrasions on his elbow.
Parker further elaborated on his condition, saying: "I'm a little sore from the fall, but I'm fine.
I had no issues during the game."

The 62-year-old Parker noted that he enjoys walking the cities he announces in, and he decided to do so Saturday just hours before the Beavers and Ramblers clashed for a spot in the Elite Eight.
Parker said he observed a man "probably in his mid 20s, kind of scraggly, talking strangely to an older gentleman," and the man then crossed a bridge and approached him.
The announcer said the man asked him what was in the bag he was carrying.
When Parker said it was work papers, the man allegedly continued to press him and asked if there was a bomb in the bag.
Parker said the man ran after him and tackled him, almost causing him to fall in the water.
Police officers on bikes in the area and were said to have come to Parker's aid.
The voice of Oregon State men's basketball, football and baseball said he told the officers he didn't want to press charges against the man and is unsure what happened to him.
Parker, who is a graduate of the University of Oregon, has been calling Oregon State athletics for 20 years, and he had one of the biggest calls of his career Saturday.
With their win over Loyola-Chicago, the Beavers became only the second No.
12 seed in NCAA tournament history to reach the Elite Eight.
It also marked Oregon State's first trip to the Elite Eight since 1982 and its first official Elite Eight appearance since 1966, as the 1982 Elite Eight team had wins vacated because of NCAA sanctions.
The Beavers fell short in their attempt to extend their Cinderella run to the Final Four, though, as they lost 67-61 to the second-seeded Houston Cougars on Monday.

NCAA kicks Beavers out of hotel in the middle of the night after Elite 8 loss originally appeared on NBC Sports Northwest
The Oregon State Beavers men’s basketball team made an improbable run that no one saw coming.
But on Monday night, the No.12 Beavers fell to the No.
2 Houston Cougars 67-61 in the Elite 8.
The Cinderella story for the Beavers came to an end, but it was a valiant effort.
You would think the NCAA would do everything they can to make sure a team like the Beavers would be treated like royalty, especially after making it to the Elite 8.
Well, that sadly isn’t what happened.
According to Nick Daschel of the Oregonian, the NCAA didn’t have the nicest parting gift for the Beavers after their loss to Houston.
Instead of letting the Beavs fly out the next morning, the NCAA told them to pack up and get on a 1:15 am flight back to Eugene.
The team arrived in Corvallis at 4 am Tuesday.
The NCAA had a nice parting gift for Oregon State.
As soon as they got back to the hotel, they were told to pack up and get on a 1:15 am flight back to Eugene.
Everyone had to hurriedly pack and head to the airport.

Not very classy.

The NCAA, for the majority of this tournament, has gotten it wrong from the start.
It really started when the NCAA was destroyed on social media when a picture of the men’s vs.
women’s weight room was shared to the masses.
Then they tried to make it a ‘spacing’ issue, rather than just telling the truth about the matter.
Thankfully it was solved, but the backlash was massive and did not look great for the NCAA.
Then this report with the Beavers has come out, and the NCAA looks like it hasn't changed or try and make things easier for people.
The NCAA tournament has been fun to watch, and yes people are happy that it is back.
But it is hard to look past how the NCAA treats the student-athletes at the largest money event for the entire organization.
The Beavers didn’t make it past the Elite 8, but they at least deserved some respect from the NCAA after their loss.
How do they keep messing everything up?!
Oregon State's Cinderella postseason run came to a close in the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament Monday evening, falling to Houston (28-3) 67-62 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
The 12-seeded Beavers (20-13) had become the darlings of the Big Dance as they knocked off Tennessee, Oklahoma State, and Loyola-Chicago to reach the Elite Eight, but ran into a tough matchup in the Cougars that was ultimately too tough to overcome.
Like the previous matchup against LUC, the Beavers started slowly against one of the nation's-best scoring defenses and couldn't find their groove on the offensive end, struggling for good looks and turning the ball over.
Oregon State has been on an unbelievable run against the spread, but one bettor thinks that will end in the Elite Eight against Houston.

Trump had argued before leaving the White House on Jan.

Zervos' case will now return to a Manhattan trial court, where her lawyers may have an opportunity to question Trump under oath.
