#BGSU men's hoops: School said 4 #Falcons players were suspended for "failure to uphold standards within program."— John Wagner (@jwagnerblade) January 27, 2017
So, the MBB season has hit an unfortunate turn. The school announced today that four Falcons have been suspended for an unspecified length of time. You can see above who they are....that's a 2nd suspension of the season for Ali and Lillard.
It is very discouraging. This team has enough problems without running up against something like this. I don't recall a recent suspension of this size. Perhaps there was one, but I certainly don't.
Obviously puts a different spin on the Ohio U game, which was going to be uphill to start with. Again, no idea if it will be more games.
I do have confidence in Coach Huger and his team. I do think he will get it there, and perhaps this is part of that process. But disappointing to have it happen in the middle of an already tough season.
