3 StFX athletes charged with assault

March 3, 2009

3 St Francis Xavier University men's basketball players are facing charges of assault causing bodily harm. The charges stem from an incident on February 21 that sent one man to hospital. The university does not plan to suspend the students, who will be not allowed to play in a tournament this weekend. Atlantic University Sport says it has no authority to act in the matter. Last month, AUS took direct action against an assistant coach with the basketball team following a physical encounter with a teenaged timekeeper from Cape Breton University. The coach later resigned.
