HATTIESBURG — Southern Mississippi women’s basketball coach Joye Lee-McNelis has been suspended for the team’s non-conference game at Louisiana Tech on Sunday.

The Hattiesburg American reports that the suspension is for three NCAA secondary violations. They include a non-qualifier participating in required physical activities, the same non-qualifier being required to attend practice activities and a student-athlete being required to participate in athletically related activities before completing mandated medical testing.
