Wichita State F Allen accused of domestic violence

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Second Round-West Virginia vs Marshall

Wichita State forward Teddy Allen was arrested and booked on suspicion of domestic violence, theft and criminal damage to property.


He was taken into custody early Thursday after a woman - identified only as a woman in her 20s - accused Allen of battering her. He was booked into Sedgwick County Jail in Wichita and later released on bond.


"We are aware of the situation regarding men's basketball student-athlete Teddy Allen and are gathering additional details in order to gain a broader understanding of the situation," school athletic director Darron Boatright said in a statement. "We will have no further comment at this time."


Allen, 21, transferred from West Virginia a year ago and sat out the 2018-19 season after the NCAA declined his request to play immediately.


A redshirt sophomore, he was projected as a starter and expected to be a key contributor for the Shockers.


The 6-foot-5 Allen played in 35 games as a freshman for West Virginia, averaging 7.0 points and 2.7 rebounds in 11.9 minutes per game.
