FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas basketball coach John Pelphrey will suspend at least one player 2-3 games following a rape investigation that did not result in charges.

The school released a statement from Pelphrey on Thursday outlining punishment for "individuals who have violated team rules." The release did not name any players and Pelphrey said he could not disclose specific punishments because of federal privacy laws.

In addition to suspension, the school said it would require educational programming, community service and additional conditioning.

Authorities decided against charges after investigating a woman's claim that she had been raped at a fraternity house. The allegations were made against three Arkansas basketball players.
