Today the Xavier Musketeers announced that they have indefinitely suspended freshman forward Jalen Reynolds.
Xavier Head Coach Chris Mack told media members “All of our players have responsibilities greater than basketball. Anytime those responsibilities are not given the appropriate attention, the first thing eliminated to narrow their focus is basketball.” Mack also stated that once Reynolds can successfully manage his responsibilities, he will re-join the team.
The 6-foot-9 forward has not received much playing time this season. He is only averaging 2.8 points per game, so the suspension does not hurt the Musketeers too much as they try to remain near the top of the Big East standings.
