The unidentified USC players have retained counsel, Spokane Police Dept. spokeswoman Monique Cotton said in an e-mailed statement.
“In order to complete this investigation we must obtain statements from all of the individuals involved, including the USC basketball players,” she said. “Our detectives are working to conduct interviews in coordination with the players and their attorneys.”
USC’s season ended last week with a loss to Utah in the Pac-12 Conference tournament.
