Clemson, SC (WCSC) -

A Clemson University spokesman says its men's basketball team is safe and secure in Barcelona, Spain, where a terror attack was reported.

"We’ve been in contact with our men’s basketball program currently in Barcelona and the entire travel party is safe and secure," spokesman Joe Galbraith said. 

Assistant Coach Dick Bender said the team is on lockdown inside their hotel.

Head Coach Brad Brownell tweeted "Thanks for all the calls and texts. Everyone on our trip is safe and our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families."

Clemson junior guard Lyles Davis, a James Island alum, tweeted right after the incident "Attack just happened outside our hotel, we're all safe." 

The team's exhibition game scheduled for Thursday night has been canceled and the team will return to Clemson Friday morning.

"Our thoughts are with the people of Barcelona," he said.

Reports say 1 person was killed and 32 more were injured after a van ran over several people on a promenade.
