GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The father of a University of Wisconsin-Green Bay basketball player is speaking out in support of coach Brian Wardle.

The university announced last week that it had launched an investigation of Wardle after receiving a complaint from the parents of a former player.

Orrin Brown is the father of junior center Alec Brown. He tells the Green Bay Press-Gazette that his son has never been mistreated by Wardle or complained about him.

But it's also not certain that Alec Brown will return to Green Bay next season. His father says he is thinking about turning professional. The deadline to declare for the NBA draft is April 28.
