((HT: KING-TV Seattle))
Seattle Police sources are confirming that a prominent University of Washington men’s basketball player is under criminal investigation, after a 16-year-old girl claimed the player raped her.
“I don’t have any comment,” said Washington Head Coach Lorenzo Romar as he left a function Monday night, noting he is “aware” of the situation.
The university acknowledges that they are aware of the investigation by the Seattle police, but declined any more comments. In a statement, the university said "Neither department officials, nor members of the UW men's basketball coaching staff or team will comment on the matter at (Tuesday's) open media session."
No one has been charged with a crime and it is not known if the player in question has been interviewed by police.
