URBANA, Ill. (AP) The top administrator at the University of Illinois' Urbana-Champaign campus says the school takes seriously allegations such as those raised in a lawsuit by seven former women's basketball players.

Chancellor Phyllis Wise said Wednesday she was also disappointed the students sued while a university-hired law firm continues to investigate their concerns.

The students' lawsuit says coach Matt Bollant and a former assistant violated their civil rights by creating a racially hostile environment.
