Memphis Grizzlies player Marko Jaric has been cleared of sexual assault allegations.

"I'm glad everything is over," said Jaric, in Boston for a game on Friday. "I'm glad the facts are out. All I want is to focus on the game and get a few more wins."

Philadelphia authorities were investigating allegations by a woman who said Jaric had assaulted her when the Grizzlies were in Philadelphia playing the 76ers earlier this month.

The woman's identity and the details of the allegations have not been released.

The district attorney concluded the allegations lack prosecutorial merit.

Jaric, the Grizzlies' point guard, is married to Victoria's Secret supermodel Adriana Lima.

The couple eloped to Wyoming on Valentine's Day, three days after the allegations.

Jaric's attorney said in a release that "these accusations are 100 percent false and untrue. All high profile couples fall victim to these sort of things through the course of their relationship. Marko and Adriana are very much in love and happily married. The couple knows that there is absolutely no merit whatsoever to these crazy and unfounded allegations."
