ESPN details a Star-Tribune report.

A late-night meeting on Friday between Gophers players and University of Minnesota President Eric Kaler and other campus leaders failed to bring an end to the players’ boycott.

Sources familiar with the discussions told the Minneapolis Star Tribune on Friday night that the players refused to back down from their demand that 10 teammates suspended from the team this week due to a sexual assault allegation be reinstated immediately.

Lee Hutton III, who represents each of the 10 suspended players, told ESPN on Saturday morning that “the players are still working to resolve the issue.”
