KU player Mario Little's court hearing will be in May

A Lawrence Municipal Court hearing for Kansas basketball senior forward Mario Little has been delayed from Jan. 5 to May 19, according to a court clerk.

Little, who was arrested Dec. 16 and charged with misdemeanor criminal trespass, criminal damage to property and battery, hired Lawrence attorney Albert Lopes to represent him. Little will have a number of options before the May 19 court date, including taking a diversion agreement or agreeing to a plea bargain.

KU coach Bill Self has suspended Little indefinitely from playing in games.
