ASU's Adrian Banks Suspended

December 2nd, 2007

JONESBORO (12/2/07) - Arkansas State Head Men's Basketball Coach Dickey Nutt announced Sunday that senior guard Adrian Banks has been suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules.

Banks started ASU's first six games this season, averaging 21.7 points and 4.2 rebounds per game.

"Our policies concerning violations of team rules have never changed, regardless of a player's role on our team or how good they are," said Nutt. "We have team rules in place that apply to everyone on the team, and if those rules are broken we will gather all the facts surrounding the violation and then move forward accordingly, which is what we are doing here."

Banks did not travel for ASU's game at Northwestern on Monday, Dec. 3, and his status for future games is yet to be determined.
