"This isn’t something that we sweep under the rug," Sung told The Roanoke Times."The team is extremely sorry.They’re trying to make it right.And I know that we’ll never make it right with anybody, but … this is a moment that defines this program but yet a moment that will help this program be better."Sung added that "this is a teachable moment" and "there is no malice involved," explaining "they're good kids that made a bad decision."
