MSU's investigation clears former basketball players accused of rape

Jun 29, 2019

Michigan State University says three former men's basketball players have been cleared of wrongdoing in connection with allegations they sexually assaulted a female student in 2015.

Spokeswoman Emily Guerrant told the Lansing State Journal that a report from a school-launched Title IX investigation did not find violations of university policy.

ESPN first reported on the findings and says it obtained a copy of the report.

Bailey Kowalski also accused counseling center staff at the East Lansing school of discouraging her from reporting the rape. She filed a lawsuit in 2018 against Michigan State and the players.

Kowalski said she was raped at an apartment after meeting the players in a bar. They weren't identified in the lawsuit.

Kowalski's attorney says she plans to appeal the university's investigation results.
