There are a lot of reasons to suspend college basketball players. Stealing laptops, DUI, drug use, cheating in classroom and etc.
But getting frisky at the Arena?
That doesn’t seem like an offense that warrants a suspension. Maybe a lecture, but not a suspension. Sports By Brooks connects the dots on suspended Kansas basketball players Tyshawn Taylor and Marisha Brown.
Monday morning the University of Kansas announced the “indefinite” suspensions of men’s basketball player Tyshawn Taylor and women’s basketball player Marisha Brown in separate press releases sent out to the media less than an hour apart.
Later Monday night, ESPN’s Holly Rowe reported what Taylor told her about the suspension.
“I said, ‘Tyshawn what did you do?’
“He said, ‘I was a bad kid.’
“I said, ‘how long will the suspension be?’
“He said, ‘It’s not anything major.”
From two Kansas media sources, I was told this morning that Taylor and Brown were allegedly discovered playing a little unauthorized 1-on-1 inside Allen Fieldhouse.
It is just like the movie “Love and Basketball” except Omar Epps and Sanaa Lathan didn’t get suspended and Epps went on to coach the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Kansas shouldn’t try to deny young love, but Taylor and Brown should get a room or is that a NCAA violation as well?
