    Well that's interesting. He leads the team in assists/game and steals/game.

    Jim Boeheim runs a classy program.

    Now if only Kabengele or a starter on FSU would break some rules...

    Suspension is for an "indefinite period," so could be as little as a partial game, or something longer, I suppose.

    Syracuse board treating this news like it's a blessing in disguise. Calling him a trouble maker, turnover prone, & should have been done awhile ago.

    They feel "Jalen", his back up, is better option anyway.

    Several fans are stating it's likely only "one game". Not sure if that's true or not. They are confident he will play again in NCAA.

    Very average PG, yet I was impressed with his defense, in terms of getting steals, transition buckets, etc.

    Their board could be underrating him. I believe he was the leading score in the recent tight game with Duke.

    Speculation is because he tried to trip Zion? Won't that be ironic after all the antics of Grayson Allen...

    He reiterated he won't be in town for tomorrow's game but that was it.

    Coach said "he won't be with us tomorrow".

    But stopped short of elaborating.

    As I recall, the Gophers' problem was pervasive academic fraud: I think one of the suspended players got caught submitting a ghost-written paper pertaining to the menstrual cycle if memory serves.

    submitting a bad paper is worse than submitting NO PAPER? UNcheats!

    Appears to be for more than violating curfew. If true, he's not playing in the tourney:

    http://dailyorange.com/2019/03/syrac...situation-say/

    Syracuse senior point guard Frank Howard has been suspended indefinitely because he failed a drug test before the NCAA Tournament, three people familiar with the situation told The Daily Orange on Wednesday night. It is unclear when the testing took place.

    “The NCAA conducts testing at its championships, and year round on campus in Division I and II programs,” according to the NCAA website. “In addition, the majority of institutions conduct their own institutional testing programs independent of NCAA drug testing.”

    The penalty for failing an NCAA test related to a performance-enhancing drug means a student-athlete loses one full year of eligibility for a first offense, according to the NCAA. Tampering with an NCAA drug test results in a student-athlete being declared ineligible for participation in postseason competition. Not showing up for an NCAA drug test, or refusing to provide a sample, results in the same penalty as a positive drug test result for a PED.
