A former Indiana University basketball player claims in a new book that legendary Hoosiers coach Bobby Knight used to grab players by their genitalia.

The former player is Todd Jadlow, and he makes the assertion in his book “Jadlow: On The Rebound.” Jadlow writes that Knight “made a habit, with Jadlow and others, of grabbing players by the testicles and squeezing.”
