A University of Portland basketball player is suing the University of Oregon, men's basketball coach Dana Altman and members of his staff for alleged negligence stemming from a 2015 recruiting visit that ended with an injury. Crisshawn Clark, a 6-foot-4 guard who transferred to Portland from Pitt this spring, claims that an ACL injury suffered while working out for the Ducks in 2015 happened during a period when it was against NCAA rules to be working him out. The lawsuit, filed Monday in Multnomah County Circuit Court, seeks at least $100,000 for "pain and suffering" along with loss of future income due to the knee injury. When reached for comment, Oregon athletic department spokesman Jimmy Stanton said the university won't comment on pending litigation, but will "certainly fight against this claim in court."
