12:09 PM PT -- A rep for Oakland University tells TMZ Sports ... "Local California authorities have informed us that they will not proceed with formal criminal charges.  However, both players have been placed on interim suspension from the team pending an internal review."

TMZ Sports has independently confirmed the L.A. County D.A. will NOT be moving forward with the case.

Two Oakland University basketball players -- including one NBA prospect -- were arrested Thursday morning after allegedly raping a woman in L.A., TMZ Sports has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us, 23-year-old starting guard Duke Mondy and 20-year-old Dante Williams were arrested inside a Culver City hotel following an SVU investigation, and subsequently booked for rape. They are each currently being held on $100,000 bail.

We're told the alleged victim -- a female in her early 20s -- called 911 around 5AM Thursday morning to report she had just been raped inside the hotel. Details surrounding the incident are unclear.

Mondy -- who led D1 in steals last year -- and Williams were in town to play UCLA Tuesday night (Oakland U. lost 91-60).

The arrests are sure to throw a monkey wrench into Oakland U's performance in the Maui Invitational, which begins tonight. The team is scheduled to play Cal at Haas Pavilion in Berkeley, CA -- and Mondy and Williams have yet to bail out.

This is total BS. So the cops arrest the dudes, but the DA says not an hour later that he isn't going to file charges against these guys. Seems like the only reason the cops arrested them boys was so they could smear their names in the press. Since they had no case. I hope they sue the pigs. This is exactly why i cheer every time a cop gets murdered.

These situations are not always about a girl crying wolf, and it is not ok to assume that she's in it for a payday until the facts are known, men rape women and that's a FACT. However, if these young men are innocent, are certainly hope they are completely cleared in every way, but it would behoove them all ( women included) to draft and print a declaration of consent to engage in sexually activities to prevent this mayhem ever again.
