Xavier Foster no longer on Iowa State basketball team
AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State announced Friday that center Xavier Foster is no longer a member of the basketball team as police investigate a sexual assault claim.
The Des Moines Register reports that Coach T.J. Otzelberger said in a statement that the program holds its student-athletes up to “high standards” on and off the court.
Foster has not been charged with a crime, but Ames police spokesperson Jason Tuttle said that he is a “target” of an investigation into an 18-year-old woman’s report that she was sexually assaulted at an October 2020 party.
A search warrant naming Foster was executed in June, and Foster’s DNA was collected through cheek swabs.
