UMKC senior guard Martez Harrison remains suspended indefinitely from the men’s basketball team and will not play in the Kangaroos’ game Tuesday at Kansas.
Kangaroos coach Kareem Richardson announced Harrison’s suspension on Nov. 29, citing a violation of athletic department policy. Harrison has missed three games.
In the six games he played in before the suspension, Harrison was the second-leading scorer on the team at 16.5 points per game. He also was averaging four assists and 2.8 rebounds per game, and shot 53 percent from the field.
Never miss a local story.
According to a UMKC spokesman, there is still no timetable for when Harrison could be reinstated to the team. Richardson has not been specific about what Harrison did to warrant the suspension.
“Just some breaking athletic policies and conduct things,” Richardson said previously. “Nothing that will get him in too big of trouble.”
When the suspension was announced, Richardson also said that the UMKC chancellor had been made aware of the situation.
UMKC, 6-3, will take on Kansas at 7 p.m. Tuesday in Allen Fieldhouse. The Jayhawks are 7-1 and ranked third in the country.
