Three Oregon basketball players who were investigated but not charged in an alleged sexual assault have been dismissed from the team.

The school announced at a press conference Friday that the players, 19-year-old Damyean Dotson, 19-year-old Dominic Artis, and 18-year-old Brandon Austin, were suspended because their conduct was not befitting student-athletes based on allegations made by a student who said she was assaulted by the players at a postgame party and at an apartment in early March.

The Lane County district attorney’s office that investigated the allegations determined that there was not enough evidence to prosecute the players on criminal charges.
While Oregon was informed of the allegations, school and team officials were asked not to take action so as not to interfere with the police investigation. Two of the athletes subsequently played in NCAA tournament games for the Ducks.
