Players meet with President Brand

The IU basketball team met with President Myles Brand at about 3:45 p.m. today to voice its support for coach Bob Knight, said junior guard Dane Fife. \nKnight, who was placed under a "zero-tolerance" sanction in May, is facing accusations that he cursed at and forcefully grabbed freshman Kent Harvey for disrespecting him Thursday afternoon. The IU Police Department is investigating the incident. \n"I feel really positive about what came out in the meeting," Fife said. "President Brand said some things that were real positive. We're waiting for the police investigation to come out. That's the key to the whole thing."\nIU Vice President for Public Relations and Government Affairs Christopher Simpson said the investigation should be completed within 72 hours, after Brand confers with the board of trustees and decides what will be the next step. The board of trustees will not meet with Brand this weekend.\n"The investigation is not completed and will not be for at least a couple more days," Simpson said. "To say a decision has been made is a little premature"
