Report: IU hoops players used false IDs
BLOOMINGTON (AP) — Authorities say Indiana basketball players Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell and Stanford Robinson have been arrested on preliminary charges of underage drinking.
Indiana State Excise Police say the 20-year-old Ferrell and 18-year-old Robinson were arrested about 1 a.m. Friday when they allegedly tried to enter a bar in Bloomington using false IDs. Excise police enforce the state’s alcohol laws.
Both were arrested on preliminary charges of underage drinking and possession of a false identification.
Police say Ferrell and Robinson were issued summons and released. Both men face Sunday appearances in Monroe County Court.
IU hoops assistant headed to Louisville
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville has hired Kenny Johnson as a Cardinals assistant coach.
Johnson had been an assistant and recruiting coordinator the past two years at Indiana, putting together top-20 recruiting classes both seasons, including a top-five group last year. The Hoosiers went 46-22 during his time under Tom Crean, winning the Big Ten Conference title and earning a No. 1 seed in last year’s NCAA Tournament.
Johnson said Wednesday at his introductory news conference that he “jumped at the opportunity” to work for Cardinals coach Rick Pitino and “learn from a Hall of Fame coach.”
Johnson also worked as an assistant at Towson. He replaces Kevin Keatts, who left to become coach at UNC-Wilmington.
