Judge to decide if Dyshawn Pierre rejoins Dayton


Dyshawn Pierre was in a Dayton federal courthouse on Thursday. According to the Dayton Daily News, after hearing arguments from both Pierre’s attorney, Peter R. Ginsberg, and university,  U.S. District Court Judge Thomas Rose will determine whether or not Pierre can immediately re-enroll in school and join the Flyers for the first semester of the 2015-16 season.

Mark Gokavi of the Dayton Daily News reported that no timetable has been set for Rose’s ruling.

Last month, it was reported that Pierre had been suspended for the first semester following a sexual assault accusation made against him last spring. Ginsberg has filed a motion for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction, according to Gokavi. If granted, Pierre would be allowed to enroll in classes and rejoin the team immediately.

Pierre is Dayton’s top returning scorer and rebounder, averaging 12.7 points and 8.2 boards per game during the 2014-15 season.
