Clemons has been ordered to stand trial April 29 on charges of assaulting a woman in his apartment.

The trial date was set last week after Clemons, 20, waived formal arraignment. He pleaded innocent last month to a charge of second-degree domestic assault.

Jessica Bunge, 20, of St. Clair, alleged Clemons pushed her down, bloodied her nose and choked her the night of Jan. 16 after she refused to watch the movie “Roots” with him. Clemons was suspended from the basketball team for one game.
