Zavier Turner Suspended Indefinitely from Ball State Basketball

BSULogoThey say there is no such thing as bad publicity, but methinks this would qualify in the “bad” category. After a 40-point thumping of IU Kokomo and a closer than expected loss to #25 Utah, Ball State basketball was on the upswing. Today, their ascent may have hit a patch of turbulence.

From the BSU release:

Sophomore guard Zavier Turner of the Ball State men’s basketball team has been suspended indefinitely by head coach James Whitford for a violation of team rules.

“­We are committed to high standards, and there are consequences for poor judgment,” Whitford said. “We place a high emphasis on the culture within our program, and we strive to develop players both on and off the court.”

Turner has started the first two games this year, averaging 12.5 points and 3.0 assists per game. He was the Mid-American Conference Freshman of the Year last season.

So there’s that. More on this as it comes.
