Messy situation at Illinois

No idea how this is going to end but parents of three former Illinois women's basketball players including one from the parents of UConn's Morgan Tuck (Tuck's older sister Taylor just wrapped up a four-year run at Illinois) make some extremely serious accusations.

The letter sent by David and Lydia Tuck allege that head coach Matt Bollant has systematically tried to create racial tension among the team and verbally abused and berated players

Similar letters were sent by the parents of two players who have transferred. You can read more about this story here

The Daily Illini was first to report the story and from what I have seen also did the most thorough job reporting the allegations. The story quotes Lydia Tuck saying Morgan's experiences at UConn are "night and day different" from what Taylor went through at Illinois.
