On Thursday night, the Kansas basketball program announced an indefinite suspension for forward Carlton Bragg.
According to a release from the team, Bragg was violated for an undisclosed violation of team rules. The Jayhawks were clear, however, that his suspension had nothing to do with an investigation into the alleged rape of a 16-year old girl visiting McCarthy Hall.
“Carlton is suspended for a violation of team rules,” head coach Bill Self said in the statement. “This violation is not connected to the alleged incident in McCarthy Hall on December 17th.”
