Resolution for the Trevor Mbakwe case may take a while, as his next trial date is scheduled for February:

Mbakwe told the Pioneer Press last summer that he wasn't guilty. Samms stated previously that the female victim of the alleged assault mistakenly identified Mbakwe. He said his client's alibi witnesses would testify that Mbakwe was attending a basketball party at the time of the incident.

Minnesota athletics director Joel Maturi said Wednesday that coach Tubby Smith would decide when Mbakwe would play if his case is resolved in a satisfactory manner. Maturi said Mbakwe might redshirt.
