Basketball: Casto’s attorney files not guilty plea, says case won’t `get to first base’

The attorney for Washington State junior forward DeAngelo Casto, who was cited for possession of marijuana and suspended indefinitely from the team, filed a not guilty plea on behalf of his client along with a motion to supress any evidence collected during a police search of Casto’s apartment.
