University of Maryland assistant faces sex abuse allegation

COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) — A University of Maryland assistant women’s basketball coach has been suspended after a player he coached at Xavier University accused him of groping her.

Court records show Bryce McKey was scheduled to appear Friday in a Kenton County, Kentucky, court to face a charge of third-degree sexual abuse, a misdemeanor. Covington Police Chief Bryan Carter confirmed police have been investigating McKey, but declined further comment.

According to a sworn affidavit, the Xavier (of Cincinnati) player says McKey asked her to come to his home in Covington in May. She says during the evening, he repeatedly touched her inappropriately.

A phone message was left Friday at McKey’s office. School spokesman Zack Bolno says he is suspended indefinitely.

The Associated Press isn’t naming the woman because of the nature of the case.
