Louisville's Chris Jones Pleads Not Guilty To Rape Charges

Feb 26, 2015 11:05 AM

Chris Jones has pleaded not guilty to charges of rape and sodomy, days after being dismissed from the team.

Jones was released on home incarceration in lieu of a $25,000 bond.

The Louisville Courier-Journal reported Thursday morning that Jones had been charged with raping one woman and sodomizing another. The alleged sexual assaults took place Saturday night, according to the report, and one of Jones' alleged victims, who was hospitalized on Sunday, identified him as the suspect.

Jones' alleged victims are 19 and 20.

Jones had been suspended by Louisville coach Rick Pitino on Feb. 17 before the team's game at Syracuse. At that time, Jones was cited in a report by university police for sending a threatening text to a former girlfriend. That woman is not one of Jones' alleged rape victims.

Jones then played in the Cardinals' win over Miami on Saturday afternoon, before the alleged sexual assaults.

On Sunday, the university announced without further explanation that Jones had been dismissed from the team.

Antonio Blakeney Commits To Louisville

Sep 5, 2014 10:13 PM

Antonio Blakeney committed to Louisville on Thursday as a member of the 2015 class.

Blakeney is rated as a five-star prospect by every major scouting service and is the No. 16 player in the ESPN 100. He chose the Cardinals over Kentucky, LSU, and Missouri.

Jeff Borzello of CBS Sports spoke of his ability: "The 6-foot-4 Oak Ridge (Fla.) product is one of the best scoring guards in the senior class, capable of getting his own shot against any defender and getting points in a variety of ways. Blakeney can go off the bounce or knock down shots from the perimeter, and his mid-range and baseline jumpers are also effective. He is also a terrific athlete and produces highlight-reel dunks in transition. Blakeney averaged 19.5 points on the Nike EYBL circuit playing for Each 1 Teach 1, shooting 44 percent from the field."

Blakeney joins Donovan Mitchell, Deng Adel, and Raymond Spalding in Louisville's 2015 recruiting class.
