James Madison's road to the Final Four just got a little tougher Sunday night as leading scorer Rayshawn Goins was arrested on charges of obstruction of justice and disorderly conduct.
Goins, a 6-foot-6 senior from Cleveland, is averaging 12.7 points per game for the Colonial Athletic Conference tournament champions. He is also the team's leading rebounder, averaging 7.4 per game.
The news of his arrest comes just days ahead of James Madison's first NCAA Tournament game since 1994. The 16th-seeded Dukes are set to play 16th-seeded LIU-Brooklyn in a play-in game Wednesday night at 6:40 PM.
The winner gets the right to play top seed Indiana.
“The athletic administration is aware of the situation,” the school said in a statement. “We will not be providing any additional comments until we review this matter in the morning.”
Tough break for James Madison.
