Michigan’s Horton pleads guilty

Ann Arbor, MI (Sports Network) – Daniel Horton, Michigan’s second-leading
scorer, pleaded guilty on Monday to a misdemeanor charge of domestic violence.

Horton, the MVP of last season’s NIT, was accused of choking his girlfriend
back on December 10. After the charges were levied in late January, Michigan
head coach Tommy Amaker suspended Horton indefinitely.

Sentencing is scheduled for March 9 and the junior point guard, who is free on
bond, could face up to 93 days in jail, as well as a $500 fine.

Horton, who has missed six games due to the suspension, is averaging 12.4
points per contest to go along with a team-leading 4.2 assists in 13 games
this season.
