Posted: Updated:

FAYETTEVILLE (KATV) - University of Arkansas men's basketball head coach Mike Anderson released the following statement regarding the suspensions of Michael Qualls and Alandise Harris:

All of our student-athletes are held to a high standard and everyone is accountable for their actions. We are trying to build the ultimate team and everyone has to be on board to make that happen. Our expectations of our student-athletes is that they reflect positively on themselves and our program at all times and that they enter each day as a Razorback with a positive attitude that helps us continue to grow this program.

Neither Harris nor Qualls traveled with the team to Baton Rouge for Saturday's game against Louisiana State University.  

 


 

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas coach Mike Anderson says junior Alandise Harris and sophomore Michael Qualls have been suspended indefinitely for conduct detrimental to the team and won't play in tonight's game at LSU.

Anderson says neither player made the trip to face the Tigers (13-6, 4-3).

Qualls is third in scoring for the Razorbacks (13-7, 2-5) with an average of 11.7 points per game. The 6-foot-6 sophomore made national highlight shows several times this season, including a game-winning putback dunk against No. 11 Kentucky on Jan. 14.

Harris is in his second season for Arkansas after transferring from Houston. The Little Rock native sat out last season, but is averaging 9.1 points per game this season.
