A brief update on WSU's suspended basketball players

From Pullman -- We had a chance to speak today with Washington State men's basketball coach Ken Bone, who provided an update on the statuses of Jordan Railey and Danny Lawhorn, who were each suspended indefinitely by Bone for violating team rules. Lawhorn has since left the team but Railey has returned and is practicing with the Cougars.

Bone said that Railey has done "everything we've asked of him," although he wouldn't yet say whether or not the center will be available to play in WSU's season-opening exhibition game against Central Washington University on November 1. Railey -- who transferred to WSU from Iowa State -- is known for his shot-blocking ability on defense, and provides crucial frontcourt depth for the Cougars.

Bone said that Lawhorn is back with his family in Connecticut. The WSU coach is fielding calls and emails from other coaches inquiring about the point guard, and Bone hopes to help him find another school to play for.
