Oregon dismisses 3 accused of sexual assault


Three Oregon players involved in a sexual assault investigation have been dismissed from the program, the university president announced Friday.
   "They will not be playing basketball at Oregon again," said Gottfredson, adding that coach Dana Altman's position has not been jeopardized by the recent developments.
   However, questions remain about the timing of the punitive measures that were taken against the players tied to the allegations.
   The allegations were made by a student who said she was assaulted by the players at a postgame party and at an apartment on March 8.
   Mullens also said he was unaware that Austin had been involved in a separate, open sexual assault investigation at Providence.
