I try to be lighthearted on Gannon Hoops, but this headline from the Indiana (Pa.) Gazette is the exact opposite: "IUP basketball star accused of raping woman." The article refers to accusations against Gerald Brooks, a three-year starter at IUP, all-PSAC last year, and preseason All-American this year.
The article goes on to say that this isn't the first time Brooks has gotten into legal trouble this year: "IUP basketball coach Joe Lombardi said Brooks was suspended from the team in August for the fall semester due to a series of minor transgressions and now has been dismissed from the team for good. 'Gerald Brooks has not been on the active roster this fall semester,' Lombardi said. 'He had been suspended from the program in August and remained in school to finish his degree. Any comment regarding the legal matter at hand has to come through the appropriate authorities.'"
