Central Michigan and its women's basketball coach are being sued by
a former player, who claims her heterosexuality was a factor in losing a scholarship after two seasons.
Brooke Heike (HI'-kee) says she fell out of favor with Sue
Guevara immediately after the coach was hired in 2007.
Heike says Guevara told her she wore too much makeup and was not
the coach's "type." Heike says that meant she wasn't a lesbian.
The former Romeo High School star lost her scholarship after the
2007-08 season. An appeals committee upheld the decision.
Central Michigan spokesman Steve Smith says the allegations have
no merit. The lawsuit was filed last week in federal court in Bay
City. It seeks an unspecified cash award.
