Hawks locked in crazy rape case.

Mass Appeal Wire Reports

LAWRENCE, Kan. — No wonder the Kansas Jayhawks haven’t played good defense this season. They’re too busy defending themselves in court. In a shocking development, KU basketball players Frank Mason III, Josh Jackson, Lagerald Vick, Mitch Lightfoot and Tucker Vang are listed as material witnesses in a rape case regarding an underage 16-year-old girl. The alleged impropriety occurred on the KU campus roughly 5 weeks ago (on Dec. 17th) at McCarthy Hall, a lavish all-male dormitory that houses approximately 40 students — including members of the men’s basketball team.

Additional claims include contributing to a child’s misconduct, furnishing alcohol to a minor, and possession of drug paraphernalia. KU forward Carlton Bragg, who was recently arrested then cleared of battery against his estranged girlfriend, is a witness in a separate case regarding a runaway.

That incident occurred Dec. 18th.

The aforementioned Vick is also linked to a domestic battery claim and vandalism.

Regardless of what transpires from here, this is obviously a bad look for Bill Self’s program? Are the Jayhawks unraveling? Should Bragg and Vick be allowed on the team? Is there a lack of institutional control? Is the rape suspect a KU basketball player?

    I have a feeling that this story will receive about 1/100th of the coverage of the hooker scandal in Louisville.

  2. Its sad to see how these young blk men who have a future are targeted by everyone. Smh

  3. I do not give a fuck about these females who get with these athletics or entertainers what do expect? You will never have them exclusively these guys are only fuckable.

  4. A many powerful men have been brought down by a woman. This is why men especially black men need to be extra careful.

  5. First Bragg gets busted for battery

    Now he’s linked to a runaway juvenile

    Nigga cant stay outta trouble

    Why is he on the team?

  6. FIRE BILL SELF!!!!!!!

  7. This is the men’s basketball dorm but it houses other upper classmen as well. A few observations without judgement since I burnt myself last time. This is really close the Bragg investigation. Suspended dec 10, reinstated dec 14 then this rape allegation on Dec 17. With 2 athletic directors being witnesses they had to have told Self that night.

    I can’t see Coach Self allowing a player under investigation for rape to continue to play, especially given how close to the Bragg incident this was. Im guessing too that since those players are listed as witnesses, they aren’t currently suspects? And with the campus police saying they didnt think their was continuous threat on campus, that possibly the rapist was a visitor to the dorm. Anyhow, Campus rape is a serious issue and I hope they dont sweep this under the rug a la the Baylor case

  8. McCarthy Hall is not a dorm. It’s like a 5-star hotel suite provided for basketball players. I don’t think non-athletes live in this “dorm” either.

  9. This is what happens when u recruit black thugs

  10. CAN WE PLEASE STOP MAKING THIS ABOUT RACE?? That is why OJ walked! This is about the long history of men sexually abusing women as acceptable behavior worthy of brotherhood. As long as men make excuses for men’s misbehavior and turning away from the real issue, this will not stop.

  11. How goddamn hard is it to not rape someone on a college campus? FFS

    As I gaze at Bragg dwarfing and hulking over good ol’ Coach Self all I can think is, “Shit, I hope Bragg wasn’t hurt too badly when his girlfriend smacked him. I’m sure glad they brought her to justice.”

  13. This team aint nuthin but a bunch of rapists & thugs

  14. This university has been covering up shit for years

  15. Self’s going to ride this thing out until the police slap the cuffs on one of his players. If it’s true, someone’s going to jail.

  16. Is coach Self being charged with harboring an underage girl in his dormitory? and are his assistants former Louisville coaches? How about charging the girl’s parents with child negligence. Maybe the boys were going to give her private basketball lessons as part of community service.

  17. Gotta wonder if Coach Self is sick of babysitting these hoodlums.

    Wouldnt surprise me to see him leave for the NBA.

  18. Cookie Monster

    If Bill Self was black he would be fired.

  19. Drugs and rape of a 16 year-old… CLASSY program!!!! LOL!!!!! HA!

  20. Bill Self is a wolf in sheeps clothing. He has known about all of these charges and yet he continues to let these punks play and acts like he knows nothing. He is a liar, a cheat and unless players get thrown into jail, he will let them play. Clearly he puts winning basketball games above all else and does not care what his players do off the court, just as long as they don’t get arrested. This guy is a snake in the grass. Clearly Self, the KU administration and the campus police have been trying to cover up several incidents by the KU players, just like Baylor was covering up countless crimes by there football players. Someone in Lawrence had better step up and do the right thing before things get way out of hand, otherwise another Baylor like situation is going to happen.

  21. How many KU football players have been working out with the basketball team? Pretty likely they will need to by the end of the year unless Self does what we all expect and let these players play even with criminal charges.

  22. Think about the Carlton Bragg case in December. A woman called 911 to report being pushed down the stairs by Bragg. Bragg was arrested and charged with battery. He was placed on suspension immediately and called a thug by many, including the media. However, there happened to be a security camera in that stairwell that showed the woman actually attacking Bragg repeatedly and he pushed her away to defend himself – not down the stairs, but up. She was then arrested. What if this video hadn’t existed? As the mother of two grown girls, I have always strongly supported women’s issues. Violence against women is a serious problem and cannot be swept under the rug, but please don’t prosecute somone on message boards and the media without waiting to find out the facts. Right now, it’s just a person calling the Star – could be correct, but also could not. We DO NOT know.
