Arkansas State suspends Banks after gun arrest
JONESBORO, Ark. -- Arkansas State leading scorer Adrian Banks has been suspended indefinitely from the Indians basketball team following his arrest early Sunday for firing a gun within Jonesboro city limits.
Banks, 21, did not accompany the team to Evanston, Ill., for Monday night's game against Northwestern. He has averaged 21.7 points per game this season for the Indians (2-4) and, last Thursday, Banks hit a 17-foot jumper as time expired for a 71-69 victory over Tennessee-Martin.
