Illinois basketball has been making headlines in March, but they've unfortunately been for all the wrong reasons. That trend continued on Thursday afternoon. Kendrick Nunn was arrested and charged with domestic battery after allegedly striking a women in her apartment on Wednesday evening. The news was first reported by the News-Gazette.

The junior guard averaged 15.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 1.7 assists per game this season while shooting 42.8% from the field (39.1% 3PT).

Nunn is the fourth member of the Illini to be arrested in the past year.

Junior point guard Jaylon Tate was arrested and charged with domestic battery last week, but his lawyers are hopeful that the charges will be dropped.

Junior forward Leron Black was suspended indefinitely last month after being charged with felony assault for threatening a bouncer with a knife at an Urbana nightclub.

Darius Paul was arrested and charged with vandalism, public intoxication, and reisisting arrest in France last Summer during the program's foreign exhibition trip; he was kicked off the team for a second time shortly thereafter.

We'll keep you updated on this latest situation as it develops.
