Carlton Bragg Suspended for Saturday’s Game vs. UK

Kansas power forward Carlton Bragg has been suspended for a violation of team rules, Bill Self announced in a press release.  The suspension is unrelated to the incident at McCarthy Hall, the dorm of the men’s basketball team.

Bragg is the Jayhawks’ sixth man.  A McDonald’s All-American in 2015, the 6’10” 240-pounder has not met expectations through his first two seasons.  This year he’s playing just 15 minutes a game, averaging 6.1 points and 4.8 rebounds.

Bragg was suspended earlier this season after being charged with misdemeanor battery in December, only to have those charges reversed shortly after.

Without Bragg, Bill Self will rely on freshman Mitch Lightfoot as Landen Lucas’ only backup in the post.

    He is pretty much nonexistent on the court so oh well.

      I still think it’s funny he said Kentucky when committing to Kansas. Maybe he would have been better off coming here. I know he wanted to, but I know Cal was holding off hoping guys like Stephen Zimmerman would commit.

    Wow breaking news KU player who doesn’t play is suspended. Cal still won’t use Bam properly to expose the position. He should have Bam, Willis, Gabriel, The Hump, and (hopefully) SKJ attack the basket. Their bigs fouls out it makes it that much easier for your guards to get to the rim. Then again Briscoe might still miss (cough cough like the breakaway missed layup cough cough)
