SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. -- Rhode Island suspended point guard Dawan Robinson from the team last month after he was arrested following a bar fight.

Robinson was suspended by coach Jim Baron and the athletic department on Sept. 24, the day he was arrested, the school officials said Thursday.

They said the suspension will last until at least Nov. 24. The coaching staff will review Robinson's status at that time, including the outcome of any legal proceedings, athletic department spokesman Mike Ballweg said.

Robinson, who sat out last season after leading the Rams to a 20-14 record and a berth in the National Invitation Tournament two years ago, was arrested outside the Black Point Bar & Grille in Narragansett. He is charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and failure to disperse, all misdemeanors.
