Duke University is conducting what it calls an evaluation of their women's basketball program and coach Joanne P. McCallie. Multiple reports indicate several players have left the program and that the internal investigation is looking into alleged mistreatment of players and coaches.

Duke released a statement..."The welfare and success of our student-athletes are among Duke's highest priorities. To that end, we are in the process of conducting an evaluation of the Duke women's basketball program. Coach McCallie is aware of the evaluation and eager to assist."

Swish Appeal.com first reported this story and reports that university officials already have interviewed players on this year's roster and they intend to contact former players and staffers.

McCallie played high school basketball at Brunswick and is a former UMaine head coach. She had been the Duke head coach for nine years and has 245 wins.
