KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas coach Bill Self said Thursday that a police investigation of an alleged rape at his team's dorm has given him no reason yet to discipline any players as the second-ranked Jayhawks prepare to play at No. 4 Kentucky.
Self acknowledged that the investigation of the alleged attack last month of a 16-year-old girl has become a "major distraction" heading into Saturday's game. No charges have been filed, and police have not publicly identified any suspects. Five of Self's players are listed as witnesses on the police report, by Self's definition meaning they could have information about "anything that happened before, during, after."
Self would not reveal what any players have told him, adding "we've been given zero information that would warrant suspensions or anything like that" for now.
