CABO SAN LUCAS, Mexico (AP) - Two Portland State basketball players were freed from jail Wednesday after they told police they weren't part of a fight in the Mexican resort town.
Jeremiah Dominguez and Scott Morrison denied beating up a 23-year-old Michigan man late Friday. It was unclear if they would stay in Cabo San Lucas after being released or return to the U.S.
Kyle Meagher said he didn't have a chance to identify his aggressors. He told police from his hospital bed that he only remembers being hit and losing consciousness.
Dominguez and Morrison were arrested three days after the fight.
Investigator Omar Barajas said the two were initially taken into custody for public drinking, but then one of Meagher's acquaintances said they may have been responsible for the fight. However, that acquaintance has since disappeared and never made a formal accusation.
Dominguez and Morrison played on the Vikings team that went a school-record 23-10, winning the Big Sky conference tournament to earn its first trip to the NCAA tournament. A No. 16 seed, Portland State lost to top-seeded Kansas in a first-round game.
Dominguez, the Big Sky's player of the year, averaged 14.2 points and 4.1 assists per game. Morrison, the league's defensive player of the year, averaged 10.4 points and 5.8 rebounds.
