STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — A suspended Oklahoma State basketball player broke down in tears as he was convicted on charges that accused him of sexually assaulting two women, then turned to jurors and yelled "I didn't do it."

Darrell (duh-RELL) Williams was convicted Monday night of two counts of rape by instrumentation and one count of sexual battery. Jurors acquitted him on two other counts of rape by instrumentation.

Prosecutors accused the 22-year-old of groping the women and reaching inside their pants without their consent at a party in December 2010.

The women testified that they identified Williams after police showed them a photo of the Cowboys basketball team. Witnesses testified that several players at the party wore similar Oklahoma State warm-up suits. Defense attorneys claimed that could have led to a misidentification.
