Darren Sharper's DNA was found on the clothing of one of the women accusing the former NFL star of sexual assault in Arizona ... this according to a detective who testified in court today. 

Detective Kevin Mace of the Tempe PD took the stand at Sharper's bail hearing -- and said the two AZ accusers who claim they were drugged and sexually assaulted by Sharper were examined after the alleged incident back in 2013. 

Det. Mace says Sharper's DNA was found on one woman's clothing ... but no trace of his DNA was found on the other woman. 

In a previous police report, investigators say they found traces of a drug used to knock people out in a shot glass Sharper allegedly gave to one of the women. 

Sharper was not present at today's hearing -- he's still locked up in L.A.  

The hearing was continued to tomorrow ... and if a judge decides to grant bail, Sharper could be released from custody as early as tomorrow afternoon.
