EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - NCAA Tournament selection committee chair Mark Hollis has cancelled a planned trip to focus on his job as Michigan State’s athletic director.

Spartans basketball coach Tom Izzo says Hollis was looking forward to traveling through 12 states in a 12-day span later this month to watch college basketball games.

Hollis has more pressing matters on campus.

Michigan State announced Thursday a police investigation is looking into a sexual assault complaint against three football players, all of whom have been suspended from team activities and evicted from campus housing. The athletic department also suspended a staff member tied to the football program pending the investigation.

Hollis is expected to lead the selection committee as expected, a role that included discussing preliminary rankings .
