Marshall Basketball: Pittman Sentenced, Not Enrolled for Spring Semester

Former Marshall basketball player Elijah Pittman pleaded no contest in court yesterday to a misdemeanor battery charge. Cable County Circuit Judge Alfred Ferguson sentenced Pittman to 12 months of jail time, but suspended that sentence for two years of unsupervised probation.

Pittman was indited last August in response to a 2012 physical incident with fellow Marshall student Mazen Younis. The Huntington Police Department incident report states that Younis suffered a concussion, broken nose, and facial fractures during an altercation with Pittman.

According to Derek Redd of the Charleston Daily Mail, Pittman did not enroll at Marshall for the spring semester. Huntington Herald Dispatch columnist Chuck Landon reported via Twitter that Pittman plans to play basketball professionally overseas.
