Binghamton guard pleads not guilty to drug charges

Binghamton University basketball player Emanuel "Tiki" Mayben pleaded not guilty at his arraignment to possessing and selling cocaine.

Mayben, who led Binghamton last year to its first appearance in the NCAA basketball tournament, was arrested Wednesday night in his hometown of Troy, N.Y.

Greg Cholakis, Mayben’s lawyer, said his client was released on $20,000 bail.

Mayben set a school single-season record for assists last year. He was named to the America East Conference All-Tournament team in March and was a second-team All-Conference selection.

In seven years, Crews had a record of 60-139, a .302 winning percentage.
