PULLMAN – Washington State will be one body short when it heads into the mountains for a tough road swing against Colorado and Utah.
KJ Langston, a seldom-used redshirt junior guard, has been suspended from the basketball team for a violation of team rules, according to a school press release Tuesday afternoon.
The rule or rules Langston violated weren’t specified, but the suspension means the second-year player won’t be traveling with the Cougars this week as they head to Boulder, Colorado, for Thursday’s game against the Buffaloes, or Salt Lake City for Sunday’s game against the Utes.
Langston has only played in one Pac-12 game this season, logging three minutes in a road contest against USC. He’s appeared in eight games altogether and has scored four points – two apiece against Texas Southern and Seattle U. Langston is averaging 3.5 minutes per game.
As a redshirt sophomore, the Chabot (California) College transfer averaged 7.5 minutes per game, appeared 21 times and scored 1.5 points per game.
