Two of Georgetown 's top players - James Akinjo and Josh LeBlanc - will not play for the basketball team for the rest of the season.

Their accuser's roommate filed a separate restraining order against Myron Gardner, as well as LeBlanc and Alexander, in which she accused Gardner of sexually harassment and assault stemming from a September 15 incident.

The student's roommate filed a second restraining order on November 12 against LeBlanc, Alexander, and freshman teammate Myron Gardner.

Neither Alexander, a junior forward, nor Gardner, a freshman, have yet had any actions lodged against them by the team.

Gardner has not responded to a voicemail seeking comment, but he told the Washington Post on Monday, "I've never done those things in my life".

A D.C. police spokeswoman said no arrests had been made in either of the cases and that they remain under investigation. We encourage any student who has a concern to be in contact with the Georgetown University Police Department or the Office of Student Conduct'. Georgetown previously issued a statement suggesting the school is investigating allegations of a student code violation.

Court documents accused LeBlanc of making threats: "In response to an alleged burglary that I believe Joshua LeBlanc committed against me on September 16, 2019, Joshua threatened bodily harm against myself and my roommate". 'He continued to threaten me verbally and via text message in the following week.

"While Georgetown refrains from commenting on individual students in accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), we take student conduct issues very seriously", the university said Tuesday.

Coach Patrick Ewing announced Monday the sophomores are off the roster "effective immediately".

In one, the plaintiff charges one of the suspects with "showing her his erect clothed penis".

Georgetown is 4-3 this season and has lost two consecutive games to Duke and UNC-Greensboro.

Another player, who the university said is not involved in the civil allegations, is also leaving the program. The 6-foot sophomore had been averaging a team-best 4.4 assists, along with 13.4 points, the second-most points on the team behind center Omer Yurtseven.
