MSU Basketball: Roquez Johnson suspended indefinitely

By Brad Locke/NEMS Daily Journal

MSU sophomore forward Roquez Johnson has been suspended indefinitely for an unspecified violation of team rules, head coach Rick Ray announced today at his weekly press conference.

The suspension of Johnson, a key 6-foot-7 reserve, comes while junior guard Jalen Steele remains suspended. Steele has been out the past three games, and his status for this week is “yet to be determined,” Ray said. Johnson is averaging 8.8 points and 4.5 rebounds per game.

So as of right now, MSU has five available scholarship players, plus two walk-ons. The Bulldogs (7-17, 2-10 SEC) play at Alabama on Wednesday.
