U of I Basketball Scoring Leader Busted for DUI


The University of Idaho has had more than its share of challenges in the sports arena. Its latest blow came this week, when the Vandals' basketball squad lost its co-leader in scoring last season to indefinite suspension.

The Moscow-Pullman Daily News reports that 23-year-old Kyle Barone was arraigned Oct. 8 for driving under the influence, following his arrest in Pullman, Wash. The Daily News said Barone was suspended from team activities soon thereafter.

Barone, a senior, is a native of Orange County, Calif., and played in every U of I basketball game for the past three seasons.
