Two Winthrop men's basketball players have been suspended from the team after they were arrested on sexual assault charges,
University police said Wednesday that 20-year-old Robert Dreher II and 21-year-old Julius Francis are both charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct.
Police say an 18-year-old woman was outside a dorm room yelling she was molested on April 17. The woman refused help then, but campus officers were called the next day by a Greenville hospital nurse who said the same woman reported a sexual assault.
Dreher started every game after serving a suspension to start last season. He averaged nearly 13 points and four rebounds a game. Francis played in 15 games, averaging a point and a rebound.
It wasn't immediately clear if either player had an attorney.
