Rysheed Jordan suspended for Friday's game vs. Monmouth

John Alber

The talented and athletic Rysheed Jordan - subject of preseason hype and more recently, the subject of conversations about his struggles to start his freshman season with a bang, has been suspended for a violation of team rules for tonight's game against the Monmouth Hawks, St. John's announced.

We have high expectations for all of our student-athletes at St. John's," said Steve Lavin. "We are hopeful that moving forward Rysheed will be able to meet his responsibilities and be able to rejoin our team on the court."

Jordan has averaged 4 points, 2 assists and 2 rebounds, shooting 23% from the floor in his first three games with St. John's. Rysheed has provided length on defense and shown the willingness to rebound - plus a willingness to look for buckets like a star player, taking 27% of the shots while he's on the floor for the Red Storm.

Jamal Branch and Phil Greene IV will likely see extended time; and with a weaker opponent, perhaps wings Max Hooper and Marc-Antoine Bourgault will have a chance to show how they can play given minutes.

Guard Felix Balamou is slated to take a redshirt year and is not available to fill in; neither will walk-on guard David Lipscomb.

The next game for the Johnnies - and hopefully for Rysheed Jordan - will be Tuesday's matchup against the Longwood Lancers.
