A subsequent public records search by The Washington Post showed a temporary restraining order had been granted in D.C. Superior Court against LeBlanc, a sophomore forward, and junior forward Galen Alexander after two complaints alleging burglary, sexual harassment and assault were filed last month. One of her housemates also requested a restraining order against Gardner. "He continued to threaten me verbally and via text message in the following week".

The first restraining order was granted on November 20 when LeBlanc and Alexander did not appear at a hearing.

The second report also was filed November 4 and took place at the same address, listing two offenses: burglary and threats to do bodily harm. On Nov. 20th, the court granted a preliminary injunction against LeBlanc and Alexander. She also said that he was involved in the burglary allegedly committed by Alexander and LeBlanc.

Neither of the accusers have been identified publicly. That request has yet to be heard in court.

"I believe that Joshua and his friends stole my items from my house and would like to be reimbursed for (the) items", she wrote.

Guard James Akinjo, who was removed from the Hoyas on Monday along with LeBlanc, is not named in any of the documents, according to Borzello.

Poor grades for Thai students in PISA tests
Almost a quarter of students reported being bullied a few times a month and 6 percent reported often feeling sad. In both reading and math , the top 10 percent of students have performed significantly better since 2012.

Akinjo is not mentioned in either complaint, and the school neglected to explain why he and LeBlanc were being kicked off the team. The rivals have played the last four seasons.

Two of Georgetown 's top players - James Akinjo and Josh LeBlanc - will not play for the basketball team for the rest of the season.

Georgetown released an updated statement on Monday night after news of the restraining orders surfaced.

The statement goes on to outline Georgetown's process for investigating and adjudicating alleged conduct violations. We encourage any student who has a concern to be in contact with the Georgetown University Police Department or the Office of Student Conduct'.

Akinjo was the 2019 freshman of the year in the Big East Conference, averaging 13.4 points and 5.2 assists, while making 39.1% of his 3-point attempts. LeBlanc, a fellow All-Freshman team selection a season ago, was averaging 7.2 points and 2.7 rebounds per game so far.
