On Tuesday afternoon, Xavier head coach Chris Mack announced that Jalen Reynolds has been suspended indefinitely from the basketball team.
“All of our players have responsibilities greater than basketball,” Mack said, according to Shannon Russell of the Cincinnati Enquirer. “Any time those responsibilities are not given the appropriate attention, the first thing eliminated to allow them to narrow their focus is basketball. When Jalen can demonstrate he is able to successfully manage those responsibilities, he will rejoin our team.”
Reynolds was a role player off the bench, but he provided the Musketeers with an athletic spark when he entered the game. He was averaging 2.8 points, 2.8 rebounds and 10.1 minutes.
Reynolds has had academic issues in the past. He was forced to spend a year at a prep school before enrolling at Xavier in the Class of 2012. He was initially denied eligibility by the NCAA and sat out the 2012-2013 season while paying his own way to attend class.
