Louisville’s starting point guard Chris Jones has been suspended by the program, the school announced on Tuesday night.
Jones will not be traveling with the Cardinals on Wednesday when they play at Syracuse.
Jones has had an issue with his attitude all season long. He was benched earlier in the season as a result of his shot selection, a punishment that resulted in Jones playing some of his best basketball of the season. In a win over Pittsburgh last week, Jones spent much of the second half glued to the bench. He was 5-for-16 from the floor and 1-for-7 from three in the loss to N.C. State on Saturday.
Jones is averaging 13.6 points, 3.9 boards and 3.7 assists on the season. Freshmen Quentin Snider and Shaqquan Aaron and sophomore Anton Gill will likely see an increase in minutes in his absence.
