Kansas Basketball Players Listed As Witnesses In Investigation Of Alleged Rape In Team Dorm

Five unnamed members of the No. 2 Kansas basketball team are listed at witnesses in a sexual assault investigation.

The incident allegedly involved a 16-year old girl visiting McCarthy Hall, the University of Kansas dorm that houses the basketball team.

From the Associated Press:

No charges have been filed and police have not publicly identified any suspects. Five members of the nation's No. 2-ranked team are listed as witnesses on the police report. A KU athletics administrator and two 19-year-old women not listed as witnesses were also questioned, the report shows.

The alleged assault and other related crimes occurred sometime between 10 p.m. on Dec. 17 and 5 a.m. on Dec. 18 at McCarthy Hall, which houses team members and other students, police said. The Jayhawks played a game against Davidson in nearby Kansas City the night of Dec. 17. The incident was first reported by the Lawrence Journal-World.

We'll continue to update if any more comes out about this incident. For now, it does not sound like any of the Jayhawks are directly implicated.
