Ex-player Corey Maggette named in Duke rape case, report says

The woman at the center of Duke's investigation into a 1999 sexual assault told friends that Corey Maggette is the basketball player who she says raped her, according to a report by the New York Times.

The lawyer for Meredith Watson said in a statement Friday that Watson had been raped by a former Duke basketball player but did not identify the player. The Times reported Monday that both a childhood friend of Watson's, and Facebook messages Watson exchanged with another friend, identified the player in question as Maggette, who went on to play 14 years in the NBA after attending Duke for one year.
