CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) The law firm investigating player complaints about the Illinois football team has now been asked to look into similar claims involving the women's basketball team, school officials said Tuesday. They say one basketball player's family has threatened legal action.

But as the investigation of potential mishandling of player injuries widened, a spokeswoman for the top official at the campus, Chancellor Phyllis Wise, said Mike Thomas still has the backing of the university.

"I can tell you the university is very supportive of Mike," Robin Kaler, the associate chancellor for public affairs, said in an interview on campus with both she and Thomas.
