By WSIL Sports

CARBONDALE -- SIU senior Justin Bocot did not play in Wednesday night's game against Western Kentucky due to an ongoing police investigation.

Carbondale police are investigating a report that Bocot sexually assaulted a woman last Saturday.

Later that day, Bocot reported being the victim of criminal damage to property. Police say the incidents are related. Bocot has not been arrested or charged.

SIU head coach Chris Lowery says when the facts are known, they will act accordingly. Bocot will continue to practice with the team but his status for Sunday's game at Western Michigan is unclear.
