Arkansas State’s leading returning scorer missed basketball practice again Tuesday because he doesn’t want to wear Adidas shoes.

Guard Jerry Nichols has had two knee operations and says he was initially injured while wearing Adidas-brand shoes. Arkansas State athletic director Dean Lee said the Indians are contractually obligated to wear the brand this season.

Nichols was told he needed to switch. Instead, he sat out practice Monday and Tuesday.
