    The story breaks, and less than five hours later the PA announces no charges will be filed.

    From the AP story:
    But Threet said witness interviews and statements from the woman didn't show that she was unaware a sex act occurred or that she was unable to say no — circumstances that could lead to sexual assault charges.

    I think I could read that sentence 100 times and still not know what it means.

    Has anyone seen the names of the players accused? I ask only because there are a couple of transfers there who I covered at their previous schools.

    Too bad they're not playing Oklahoma in Miami next week.

    VERY ancient callback.

    Be interesting to see how this is covered by the NW Arkansas media.

    There was a sexual assault involving members of the basketball team back in the early 90s and one of the TV stations up there ran with the names of the accused players based on an unnamed source. For whatever reason, the station came down really hard on one player in particular.

    Well, it turned out that the player they zeroed in on wasn't among the accused and he sued the TV station. For that reason, the call letters for KPOM from that point forward were said to stand for:
