McNeil suspended

MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota sophomore guard Daquein McNeil has been charged with two felony counts of assault and suspended from the Gophers basketball team.

McNeil, 20, was charged Wednesday and was being held in the Hennepin County jail.

"Men's basketball student-athlete Daquein McNeil has been suspended from all team activities pending an investigation into a possible domestic assault,” Minnesota athletic director Norwood Teague said in a statement.

The criminal complaint accuses McNeil, a native of Baltimore, of assaulting a woman he had been dating the past 10 months.

The complaint said McNeil attacked the woman at her apartment on Monday, pouring alcohol and cold water on her repeatedly and eventually choking her and hitting her with a belt.

“We are currently gathering information and cooperating with the authorities,” Teague said. “This athletics department values respect and positively impacting the lives of others and will not tolerate any form of domestic assault from its staff or student-athletes."
