Charges against Duke Mondy and Dante Williams, two Oakland University basketball players arrested early Thursday morning, will be dropped, Oakland coach Greg Kampe told CBSSports.com on Friday.

A Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department official confirmed to CBS earlier Friday that the pair had been charged with felony rape.

According to the sheriff's department website, Mondy and Williams were released at 11:30 a.m. PST. The site had previously shown that each was being held on $100,000 bail.

The players will face team discipline, the coach told CBSSports.com's Matt Norlander.

"They will be appropriately suspended upon review of the situation," said Kampe, who added that Mondy and Williams met the alleged victim at Wednesday's Clippers game at Staples Center. "This was more than going past curfew, more than breaking of team policy. It's more than that. I take it very seriously, am apologetic to our fans, apologetic to college basketball that something like this would happen."

Oakland University, a member of the Horizon League, is located about 10 miles outside Detroit. The team was in California for a game against UCLA on Tuesday before it traveled to Berkeley for the opener of the Maui Invitational against Cal on Friday night.

Mondy, a senior guard who transferred from Providence, led the NCAA with 100 steals last season and was considered an NBA prospect. He is averaging 10.5 points, 6.0 rebounds, 6.0 assists and 4.0 steals this season.
