James Madison suspends Goins for first half following arrest

By Jeff Goodman | College Basketball Insider

James Madison will be without its leading scorer and rebounder for the first half of the Dukes' game against LIU-Brooklyn after his arrest on Sunday night for obstruction of justice and disorderly conduct.

Rayshawn Goins, who averaged 12.7 points and 7.4 rebounds this season for Matt Brady's team, got into an incident at a team party on Sunday night and will sit out the first 20 minutes of Wednesday's play-in game.

"In accordance with JMU athletic policy, Coach Matt Brady is suspending Rayshawn Goins for the first half of the NCAA Tournament game on Wednesday night in Dayton," the school announced in a statement on Monday afternoon. "After having thoroughly reviewed the details in this case, the athletic administration supports Coach Brady's decision. Matters involving student athletes are reviewed independently on a case-by-case basis. Appropriate action is taken based on the details of each case. At this time, there are no additional details to provide until this specific case processes through the legal system."

Goins had 14 points and 13 boards in JMU's win over Northeastern last week in the CAA title game.
