LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — A Wyoming basketball player accused of kicking a man in the face during a bar fight has pleaded not guilty before a judge in Laramie.

Senior guard Luke Martinez entered his plea before Judge Jeffrey Donnell on Wednesday. He is charged with one count of aggravated assault and battery. The charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a fine of $10,000.

Martinez is accused of kicking a man who was unconscious. The fight happened Dec. 30 outside a Laramie bar. Martinez’ attorney, Tom Fleener, says Martinez is a victim in this case and was not the aggressor.

Martinez, of Bismarck, N.D., is suspended from the team but remains enrolled at UW. He was averaging 14.5 points a game before his suspension.
