Ingram leaves St. John's in wake of scandal



The Associated Press

NEW YORK - St. John's guard Elijah Ingram withdrew from the university Wednesday, one week after he and five other teammates broke curfew to go to a strip club.

Ingram, a sophomore who led the team in scoring, left on the same day the St. John's judicial board suspended teammate Abe Keita from school for one year.

Ingram and Keita already were permanently suspended from the basketball team. Teammate Grady Reynolds was expelled from St. John's last week. Two other players were suspended from the team but remain in school; another player faces unspecified lesser discipline.

A 38-year-old woman told police she was raped by St. John's players she met at a strip club Feb. 4. No criminal charges were filed against the players, and the woman - Sherri Ann Urbanek-Bach - said she made up the story after the players refused to pay her $1,000 for sex.

WISCONSIN: Guard Maurice "Boo" Wade was charged with choking a woman at her apartment and is to appear in court today on a misdemeanor battery charge. Wade, who was suspended for two games, is eligible to play, a Wisconsin spokesman said.
