Knox College Statement on Women's Basketball

This past Saturday, a Knox College women's basketball player staged a protest prior to the start of a regulation game in response to the events in Ferguson, Missouri. The player was suspended for one game for leaving the court and sitting out the competition. Upon review of the situation and discussion with the team, and in recognition of the larger national context, the decision was made to reverse the suspension, and the player has been invited to resume all basketball activities. The College deeply appreciates the many viewpoints expressed by the women's basketball team and their thoughtful dialogue as we sought to arrive at a resolution that considered all perspectives.
