CINCINNATI (AP) -A judge in Cincinnati has agreed to delay the assault trial of Mississippi basketball coach Andy Kennedy until after the NCAA tournament.
An attorney for Kennedy made the request Friday, and the judge agreed to schedule the trial for April 20.
A cab driver accused Kennedy of punching him and using ethnic slurs on Dec. 18, when Kennedy and his team were in town to play in the SEC/Big East Invitational.
He's charged with a first-degree misdemeanor count of assault, which would carry a maximum sentence of six months in jail if convicted.
Kennedy denied the allegations and filed a defamation lawsuit against cab driver Mohamed Moctar Ould Jiddou. On Friday, Jiddou filed a counter lawsuit.
