Basketball: X's Richards to face additional charge

A Nov. 26 trial date has been set for the three St. Francis Xavier basketballers, Tyler Richards, Eamon Morrissy and Will Donkoh, who were charged with assault in connection with a bar fight in Antigonish, N.S., back in February. The big takeaway, though, is that Richards, who averaged a team-high 19.6 points before being suspended, is facing an extra charge.
"In court Monday, Judge John Embree ordered that an additional charge against Tyler Richards, 23, of Dartmouth, N.S., will be heard at a trial tentatively scheduled for Nov. 26.

"That’s the same date when all three players will be tried on one count each of assault causing bodily harm.

"Richards' second charge is one count of threatening to use a knife while committing an assault."
Please note the charge is threatening to use a knife, not actually using a knife. Again, let us let the facts come out and let the court decide. Talk about a little egg on the face for a great program at St. FX.

  1. I have long regarded X as "Georgetown North"
    And no, that was not meant to be a compliment.

  2. the program includes a head coach that has been suspended by the AUS, an Assistant Coach that has received a 1 year suspension, 3 players this year charged with assault, player charged with assault with a knife, players caught cheating on their exams, players caught stealing from other students ..... yet the Athletic Director and President are still Rah, Rah, Rah .... don't let anything get in the way of the score!
