Utah State's DiLoreto in trouble again
By Diamond Leung
Utah State freshman Anthony DiLoreto has been suspended indefinitely due to an undisclosed violation of team rules, the school announced Monday.
DiLoreto, a 7-foot-1 center who was redshirting the season, pleaded no contest to a year-old felony charge stemming from a 2008 bank robbery in Wisconsin in which prosecutors said he was the would-be getaway driver. According to The Pioneer Press, DiLoreto was sentenced in October to 90 days in jail to be served over three summers.
DiLoreto originally signed with Cal Poly, but enrolled at Utah State shortly after taking a plea deal in August.
"Anthony's situation is well-known," Utah State coach Stew Morrill said in a statement at the time. "He made a mistake. He is anxious to move forward in his life and prove himself on and off the court."
