CAMPBELL COUNTY, Ky. (WLWT)– Northern Kentucky University is conducting an independent, external review of its women’s basketball program amid allegations of abuse.

This comes a week after an online article was posted claiming the head coach, Camryn Whitaker, emotionally abused players.

Current and former players accuse Whitaker of calling them names, belittling them, and even threatening to take away their scholarships.

But some players have come to the coach’s defense, saying the challenges at NKU are not out of the norm.
