ESPN: Maryland center Diamond Stone has been suspended for Thursday’s game against Minnesotaafter the freshman big man shoved Wisconsin forward Vitto Brown‘s head to the floor late in the first half of his team’s 70-57 loss on Saturday.
The school made the decision, and it was supported by the Big Ten.
Stone, who scored 10 points and grabbed one rebound in the loss, was issued a contact dead ball technical foul but was not tossed from the game.
What a classy move by Maryland. I mean I don’t know where they get such a bad rap, but it’s not fair. Sure, they may pay to get big time recruits and they may welcome in transfers who have been accused of rape, but if one of their players assaults somebody on national television, they won’t even be allowed to play against 0-13 Minnesota. That’ll show him.
