Memphis player pleads not guilty to assault


A Memphis basketball player is due in court later this month after she allegedly punched a Bowling Green State University player in the face after a game.

On March 23, following the Memphis vs. Bowling Green State University women’s basketball game, Memphis player Jamirah Shutes was charged with one count of assault, a first-degree misdemeanor.

She could face up to 180 days in jail and up to $1,000 fine, according to Bowling Green City Prosecutor Alyssa Blackburn.

Shutes waived her arraignment scheduled for Wednesday and entered a plea of not guilty.

This case is set for April 24 at 8:30 a.m. for a pretrial conference, Blackburn said.
