Illinois star Terrence Shannon Jr. granted ruling from judge that could allow him to play

Jan 20, 2024

Illinois guard Terrence Shannon Jr. took his team to court after he was suspended in the wake of a rape charge against him. On Friday, he was granted a ruling that could allow him to play for the team again.

Shannon was suspended from Illinois' basketball team on Dec. 28, when he was arrested on rape charges in Kansas. His four attorneys claimed that the program ignored due process, and the All-America candidate pursued legal action against the university for the "rush to judgment."

The move was successful, as Judge Colleen R. Lawless ruled in favor of Shannon's motion for a temporary restraining order (TRO) Friday afternoon. The decision came less than 24 hours after he made his first appearance in front of the Douglas County judge and officials from the county District Attorney’s office via Zoom.
