    UGENE -- Oregon basketball junior point guard Dominic Artis, junior guard Damyean Dotson and sophomore forward Brandon Austin are not currently participating in team activities, the school announced Monday morning, leaving each player's status with the Ducks in limbo.

    Previously Monday morning, Artis was said to be seeking a transfer from the Ducks, as reported by ESPN's Jeff Goodman.

    Artis averaged 8.5 points and 3.2 assists per game as a freshman in 2012-13 but missed the first nine games of his sophomore season due to a suspension for selling team-issued gear along with teammate Ben Carter. Once Artis returned from the suspension he averaged 4.1 points and 2.2 assists per game in largely a backup role.

    Austin has been under scrutiny since his arrival in January from Providence. Austin was ranked among the nation's top 50 players in the 2013 class out of Philadelphia but didn't play a game for the Friars after being suspended indefinitely on Nov. 6. On Dec. 23, he and a teammate were suspended for the season for "not upholding their responsibilities as student-athletes." In March, the Wall Street Journal reported Austin and the teammate were linked to a sexual assault investigation in Rhode Island.

    Although they were allowed to play in the 2 weeks following the incident (it seems police didn't notify school until Apr.24) the school seemed to take swift action based solely off an accusation once police report was available.

    FSU would most likely take them, I mean after all it's just a sexual assault allegation.

    I'd normally say something about due process, but some universities actually care about their reps.

    They all sound like lucky Ducks to me.
    Lane Brain County says it's 'unprovable'.
