ST. LOUIS -- Missouri curators say they expect a public discussion this week of a former university swimmer’s allegations that she had been sexually assaulted by several football players before later committing suicide.

The Board of Curators meet Wednesday in Columbia. Curators David Bradley and Wayne Goode told The Associated Press Monday the board will review system President Tim Wolfe’s call for an external legal review into Sasha Menu Courey’s death in 2011.

The university’s athletic department initially responded to an ESPN story on the swimmer by defending its handling of the case. The school says neither Menu Courey nor her parents sought a police investigation and didn’t respond to requests for more information.

The university said Saturday that it turned its information about the allegations over to Columbia police after ESPN’s story.
