Kansas Jayhawks Basketball: Starter Tyshawn Taylor Suspended Indefinitely
Will Tyshawn Taylor's Indefinite Suspension Cost Kansas Jayhawks Number One Seed in Tournament?
The Kansas Jayhawks have not had a good week basketball-wise. They fell out of the top spot in the rankings after losing to Kansas State quite definitively (a win that cemented Kansas State's tournament hopes), and now they have to deal with losing a player.
Kansas coach Bill Self announced Monday that junior guard Tyshawn Taylor was suspended indefinitely for violating team rules. Now, indefinitely could mean the whole season, or it could mean two games—we don't know that yet. What we do know is that they could be facing Texas A&M, Missouri and others without one of their starters.
Taylor was averaging 8.8 points and 4.7 assists per game, so his loss will be felt as the Jayhawks try to hang with Texas for the Big 12 title. Still, the consensus is that he wasn't playing to the best of his ability in the Kansas camp, so perhaps they will be fine without him.
Kansas is second or third depending on what poll you read, and as long as they can outlast Texas in the Big 12 tournament, they'll be a number one seed in the NCAA tournament. If they can't beat Texas, then they'll have to settle for a number two seed.
