Kansas coach Bill Self announced that starting guard Tyshawn Taylor has been suspended for a team-rules violation.
The Jayhawks play tonight at home against Oklahoma State.
“Although we are disappointed in Tyshawn, he will remain a member of our team and practice with our team until he is reinstated for competition,” Self said.
Taylor averages 8.8 points and 4.7 assists. He’s started 26 of 27 games for Kansas (25-2, 10-2 Big 12) this season and is averaging 8.8 points per contest.
Earlier, Self announced that Thomas Robinson could see action in tonight’s game. Robinson had surgery 10 days ago to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee.
“My anticipation is it’s a 50-50 chance he can play a little bit,” Self said during the Big 12 coaches teleconference.”
Kansas announced Taylor’s suspension after Self’s appearance on the teleconference.
Kansas also announced that women’s basketball player Marisha Brown was suspended for violating team rules.
“Marisha will remain a member of our team and continue to practice until she is reinstated for competition, however, we are very disappointed in her,” said Jayhawks coach Bonnie Henrickson.
Brown, who attended Center High in Kansas City, has started seven games and is averaging 4.0 points and 2.4 rebounds.
