EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Following the dismissal of three basketball players in the wake of a police investigation into an alleged rape, Oregon has formed a panel to review prevention and response practices in sexual misconduct cases.

University President Michael Gottfredson, Vice President for Student Affairs Robin Holmes, and athletic director Rob Mullens announced the formation of the independent committee Monday.

Damyean Dotson, Dominic Artis and Brandon Austin were dismissed from the team after the school received a police report concerning allegations made by a student who said she was sexually assaulted by the players in early March. The Lane County district attorney’s office determined there wasn’t enough evidence to prosecute the players on criminal charges.
