The University of Memphis released an outside firm’s report into the women’s basketball program after allegations of harassment and abuse surfaced. Four months ago, the university hired The Pictor Group to conduct an extensive review of the program, and since then they have spoken with current and former staff members along with student athletes.

They specifically noted that the women’s basketball facilities were not on par with those of the men’s.
