Illinois' Tate rejoins basketball team after case dropped

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) Illinois athletic director Josh Whitman says Jaylon Tate has been reinstated to the basketball team after a misdemeanor battery charge against him was dropped.

He was accused of striking a woman in March, but the charge was dropped Tuesday for lack of evidence. Whitman said Tate had "shown exceptional character during this unfortunate situation" and hoped fans will welcome him back.

Whitman also said Friday that Kendrick Nunn's suspension from the team is still being evaluated. Nunn pleaded guilty to misdemeanor domestic battery and received probation earlier this week after also being accused of hitting a woman.
