BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) -- Virginia Tech's Ty Outlaw has been charged with possession of marijuana, potentially jeopardizing his status for the remainder of the NCAA Tournament.
The sixth-year senior was charged March 21, the day after he and the Hokies arrived in San Jose, California for the first round of the NCAA Tournament, according to records on the Virginia Courts Case Information web site. His hearing is set for April 11. Outlaw started and scored seven points March 23 as the fourth-seeded Hokies beat Saint Louis 66-52 in the first round of the tournament.
Virginia Tech plays Friday night against top-seeded Duke in Washington, D.C.
Virginia Tech officials did not immediately respond Wednesday to questions about Outlaw's status going forward.
