BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich. (AP) -- A Michigan judge has sentenced former NBA guard Jalen Rose to serve 20 days in jail for a drunken driving crash along a snowy suburban Detroit road in March.

Bloomfield Hills District Court Judge Kimberly Small sentenced the former University of Michigan standout to 92 days overall, with all but 20 days suspended. She also sentenced him to a year of probation.

Rose showed no expression as he left the courtroom.

Rose pleaded guilty to the charge. He told a judge in May that he had six martinis the night he veered off a West Bloomfield Township road.

A hospital test showed his blood-alcohol content as 0.12 percent, above Michigan's legal driving limit of 0.08 percent.

Rose played 13 NBA seasons and is now an NBA analyst for ESPN.
