Syracuse Coach Jim Boeheim Addresses Frank Howard Suspension

Syracuse's Frank Howard Suspended Indefinitely

Howard was playing some of his basketball of the year in the ACC Tournament last week.

Howard is averaging 8.9 points per game, but has been on fire as of late. Howard achieved viral infamy after trying to trip Duke's Zion Williamson during the ACC Tournament last week.

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. But he is an important defensive presence at the head of Boeheim's zone.

Boeheim on Howard out: "He's not playing".

Tyus Battle, Howard's backcourt mate, would seem a likely candidate, though Boeheim would not tip his hand.

"It is very similar to last week when we found out Tyus wouldn't play".

In four games without Howard to start the season - after the senior sustained a preseason ankle injury - Syracuse beat Eastern Washington and Morehead State, but lost to UConn and Oregon.

Baylor's best player, point guard Makai Mason, is a graduate transfer from Yale. "Very hard to make that change now", Boeheim said, according to a transcript on Syracuse.com. He scored 18 points in a win over Pittsburgh and followed with a career-high 28 points against Duke, the same game where he tripped Williamson.

"Fortunately, Tyus has played the point quite a bit this year", Boeheim said Wednesday.

The ninth-seeded Orange play Baylor Thursday night. We know that.... We started the year without him... very hard to make that change now... fortunately Tyus has played the point quite a bit this year... "And we're going to have to make that same adjustment this week with a different guy going".
