Police: Providence players accused of sex assault

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Police in Rhode Island are investigating an allegation that two Providence College basketball players sexually assaulted another student on campus in November.

Providence police Maj. David Lapatin (lah-PAY'-tin) told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the complaint was filed about two weeks ago by a female student.

Lapatin would not name the players, but a defense lawyer says unsubstantiated sex assault allegations were made against players Rodney Bullock and Brandon Austin when they were suspended from play. Bullock's lawyer, Bill Lynch, says the school reviewed them and made no finding of a sex assault.

Bullock and Austin were suspended Nov. 6. A school spokesman would not give details.

Austin now attends the University of Oregon. The AP has left a message with a spokesman there.

The investigation was first reported by the Wall Street Journal.

.......................... and neither one of these "players" ever saw 1 minute of play this year. so the leadin to this story is somewhat misleading.
