Frank Howard suspended indefinitely due to violation of Syracuse athletic department policy

May JohnsonMar 22, 2019

Battle said players did not find out about Howard's suspension until the school released its statement roughly 10 minutes before the team was scheduled to be on the floor for practice.

"He's not playing. We know that".

The same can't be said for Jim Boeheim and Syracuse. "We practiced with the inclination that this would be the case".

Syracuse men's basketball (20-12), No. 8 seed in the West, opens its NCAA Tournament Thursday night with a first-round game against the Baylor Bears (19-13), No. 9 seed.

The Bears have a non-conference win over OR, but most of their big games came in conference play.

The Orange also struggle taking care of the ball and that issue really showed in the ACC tournament.

The class's top unsigned recruit, Cole Anthony, is down to six schools, but appears to be leaning heavily toward the Tar Heels . Nike was one of the biggest trending topics on February 20th for a reason they probably weren't too happy about.

The play occurred after a Williamson dunk. He became embroiled in controversy when he appeared to stick his foot out as Blue Devils star Zion Williamson ran by.

Now it will be Battle, set to return Thursday, who will most likely step in for Howard at point guard.

Howard's loss could hurt the Orange's chances against Baylor.

Without Howard, the Orange could continue to use Buddy Boeheim in the starting lineup.

"Fortunately, Tyus has played the point quite a bit this year, even when Frank came back at Duke and several other spots along the way", the coach said. Mason could change the outcome for the Bears if he can rekindle the magic he had with Yale in 2016, but that seems unlikely with how he's played lately. "And we're going to have to make that same adjustment this week with a different guy going".
