Well, here’s a quote you don’t hear every day. In case you missed it in our morning headlines, yesterday Brandon Marcello of The Jackson Clarion-Ledger asked Mississippi State coach Rick Ray about the indefinite suspension of Jalen Steele, one of the Bulldogs’ few scoring options. Ray’s reply was to the point:
“Now you’re taking away a chance for guys to go out and compete and win because you’ve shortened the rotation. I think more than anything you’re screwing your team and you’re screwing your teammates when you get into trouble like that.”
The junior guard apologized to fans via Twitter on Monday. He is averaging nine points per game for the Bulldogs this season.
