WFU president says school 'misrepresented' on 'Today Show'

('Today' Show) - Maggie Hurt, a former student at Wake Forest University, claims Gary Clark forced her to perform oral sex at a hotel during the team's NCAA Tournament appearance in 2009.

WINSTON-SALEM, NC (By Michael Hewlett, Winston-Salem Journal) - On 'The Today Show' Thursday morning, a former Wake Forest University student accused Wake Forest officials of not taking seriously her allegations that WFU basketball player Gary Clark sexually assaulted her two years ago in Miami while teammate Jeff Teague stood outside a hotel bathroom.

She was one of two former college students to be interviewed – the other one was from Indiana University.

"They broke the promise that they made to me, that they would keep me safe," said Maggie Hurt, the Wake Forest student.
