Pierre Pierce- A free man

Postby flyinplastic23 » Mon Sep 25, 2006 9:45 am

MOUNT PLEASANT -- Former University of Iowa basketball star Pierre Pierce is a free man.

Pierce, who spent the past 11 months in the Mount Pleasant Correctional Facility after he was convicted last fall of assaulting and terrorizing his girlfriend, was released today. Pierce will remain on probation for four years and a month, said Fred Scaletta, a spokesman for the Iowa Department of Corrections.

Pierce walked out of jail a little after 8 a.m., wearing a white track suit and flanked by his father. Pierce declined comment to reporters, saying only that he was "glad to be free."

Pierce, his father and another man then hopped into a car and drove off while a few prisoners shouted his name.

Scaletta said Pierce is scheduled to meet with a probation officer next week to outline the terms of his probation. Pierce will stay at a residence in Johnson County after Illinois authorities rejected a transfer of supervision residence plan.

Pierce, 23, formerly of Westmont, Ill., entered a plea agreement with the Iowa attorney general's office to settle charges stemming from a January 2005 incident at the West Des Moines home of a former girlfriend.

Pierce pleaded guilty in August 2005 to third-degree burglary, assault with intent to commit sexual abuse, false imprisonment and fourth-degree criminal mischief.

He was sentenced up to two years in prison, but his sentence was reduced due to good behavior and completion of sex offender treatment.

Pierce said at a parole board hearing in July that he made arrangements to live with a coach in Iowa City, where he could finish his degree and pursue a professional basketball career.

Pierce was dismissed from the Iowa basketball team by coach Steve Alford within days of police confirming that Pierce was being investigated.

At the time, Pierce was the third-leading scorer in the Big Ten. Pierce led the Hawkeyes with 16.1 points a game as a sophomore in 2003-04.

Until they get some playoffs college football is meaningless anyway. We are talking hoops here.

Even if we took the poll in Iowa City - Alford vs. Weber.
Weber would would win hands down.

football meaningless? no way. they still have a national champion every year, and most years they get it right.

in basketball, the best team rarely wins it all. it is usually whoever is hot for a couple weeks.

i personally think it is better to name a national champion from the whole year rather than a couple of weeks out of the year.

plus, there is a lot of debate because of no playoff system.
