FSW hoops players cleared of sexual assault; suspensions lifted

SOUTH FORT MYERS, Fla. — Sexual assault allegations against two Florida SouthWestern State College basketball players were unfounded, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office determined.

The student who filed the complaint naming Marice Wright and Germain Remy has withdrawn it, and the team has ended the suspensions the players were given Wednesday, the school said.

The sheriff’s office has closed its investigation. No charges are pending.

The suspensions for Wright, a 6-foot-11 transfer from Wayne County Community College in Michigan, and Remy, a 6-foot-5 Germain Remy from 22 Feet Academy in Greenville, South Carolina, were tied to the allegations, the school said. Initially, FSW would only say they were suspended for violating unspecified team rules.

Wright and Remy will be available to play in the team’s Nov. 2 opener at ASA College of Miami.

“We thank the Lee County Sheriff’s Office for their thorough and impartial investigation of the allegations, and for getting to the truth of the matter,” an FSW spokesperson said in a statement. “It’s now time for our FSW community to heal and move forward.”

The student who brought the allegations told Lee County Sheriff’s Office deputies earlier this month that she thought she blacked out while she hosted a party at her dorm room and was told by friends that a video was circulating online showing her and two men she didn’t know “partaking in sexual acts in her bedroom.”
