Where does Jim Calhoun find these guys? In the last few years, AJ Price, Marcus Williams, Jerome Dyson, Doug Wiggins, and Stanley Robinson have all had to miss time because of issues ranging from stolen lap tops to underage drinking to academic problems. Well, would you be surprised if I told you another UConn player is going to miss time.
UConn freshman Nate Miles was expelled from school yesterday, for an assortment of charges. From Mike Anthony of the Hartford Courant:
According to an affidavit obtained Wednesday, the alleged victim said the relationship began with consensual sex but later Miles became physical and "extremely possessive."The alleged victim, a 19 year old freshman from Manchester, CT (Miles is 20), got a restraining order against Miles, which he violated 16 minutes later by calling her.
The affidavit said the woman went to Miles' dorm room on Sept. 14, at which time he began pressuring her to have sex. When she refused, he allegedly "would tap my face or dig his nails into me." When she hit him back, he "slapped me and pushed me off the bed."
Miles has been banned from campus since the assault, but will only face criminal charges based on the restraining order violation.
This is really bad news for the Huskies. They have already lost Stanley Robinson for at least the first semester this year. The UConn admissions office has finally received the grades of international recruit Ater Majok, but he will not be eligible until at least the second semester.
