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.
