In an unexpected development, Kansas coach Bill Self announced Monday that he has suspended junior guard Tyshawn Taylor indefinitely for violating team rules.
“Although we are disappointed in Tyshawn, he will remain a member of our team and practice with our team until he is reinstated for competition,” Self said in a statement, which was delayed until after his appearance on the weekly Big 12 coaches' conference call.
Taylor is averaging 8.8 points and has started 26 of 27 games. He ranks third in the Big 12 with 4.7 assists per game and is seventh in the conference with a 1.7 assist-to-turnover ratio.
