University of Oregon basketball coach Dana Altman was far more entangled in the school’s response to a rape allegation against his player than the school previously acknowledged. Investigative reporting by Sports Illustrated in October revealed that, according to analysis of public documents, the university violated its obligations under the law and acted at odds with the school’s own policies upon learning that Kavell Bigby-Williams, a transfer power forward from Gillette (Wyo.) College, was under criminal investigation in Wyoming for an alleged sexual assault that occurred while he was a UO student. UO previously stated Altman was aware police were looking into Bigby-Williams but didn’t know what it was about, and did not know the nature of the allegation. Bigby-Williams went on to play the entire season, including the Final Four, with an open police investigation for forcible rape. -Kenny Jacoby, Sports Illustrated, Read More
