PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - The University of Oregon says three former basketball players have been suspended as students for a minimum of four years, and up to 10 years, as a result of rape allegations involving a freshman student.

University spokeswoman Julie Brown confirmed the suspensions.

Damyean Dotson, Dominic Artis and Brandon Austin were dismissed from the team last month after a student filed a police report alleging she was sexually assaulted by the players.

Prosecutors decided there wasn’t enough evidence to criminally charge the players, who said the sexual contact was consensual.

John Clune, the attorney for the alleged victim, said the suspensions are dependent on how long the woman remains at the school. He said it would have been hard for her to continue if the players remained on campus.
