  • NCAA President Mark Emmert

NCAA President Mark Emmert said in an email obtained by the Associated Press on Saturday he did not turn a blind eye to allegations of sexual assault against former Michigan State athletes and that the incidents were "widely reported".

Major scrutiny of Michigan State University followed the Larry Nassar sexual assault scandal, with the school's president and athletics director resigning amid the fallout.

Auerbach obtained a letter from Kathy Redmond, the founder of the National Coalition Against Violent Athletes, to Emmert that is dated November 17, 2010.

Canada, ranked seventh in the world, ended its Pool D schedule with a 40-19 defeat against the No. 12 United States on Saturday. The Canadians are out of the running for the main Cup trophy but will play Samoa on Sunday in the Challenge quarter-final.

Emmert first pointed out the letter Redmond sent was to the NCAA Board of Governors which was called the Executive Committee at the time.

The coalition letter, also provided to the AP, detailed what the group described as a "growing epidemic" of sexual assaults by male athletes against women, and used "recent reports" of sexual violence involving two Michigan State players basketball players as an example.

He was alerted to 37 reports involving MSU athletes sexually assaulting women by Kathy Redmond who is the founder of the National Coalition Against Violent Athletes. But Redmond also suggests that the NCAA president, who once said that "one sexual assault is one too many", essentially resigned himself to the notion that the NCAA "can't be state actors".

"What I really got from the experience with Mark Emmert was that governing body governs him", she said.

Emmert made the comments in an email to the NCAA Board of Governors and other university presidents. Also in attendance alongside Emmert and Redmond was legal expert Wendy Murphy, according to the website.

Ingham County prosecutors declined to press charges, though the victim said she was told by campus police at the time that it seemed like a strong case to pursue because of Payne's interview with the police, which included Payne saying he could "understand how she would feel that she was not free to leave". "He met with me, which was great and I appreciated that". He wrote that he discussed her policy proposal with senior leadership but noted the NCAA doesn't have jurisdiction to investigate criminal complaints. "And they've done that".
