An NBA security guard has filed suit against Geno Auriemma, the NBA, and USA Basketball on employment discrimination grounds. According to the lawsuit, Kelley Hardwick alleges that Auriemma tried to kiss her during a 2009 USA Basketball trip to Russia, but she denied his advances by shoving him away. Further, according to the lawsuit, Hardwick claims Auriemma had her removed as security official overseeing the USA women’s basketball team, which denied her promotions, raises, and employment opportunities based on her gender.
