Arkansas has suspended Michael Qualls and Alandise Harris indefinitely for conduct detrimental to the team.
“All of our student-athletes are held to a high standard and everyone is accountable for their actions,” head coach Mike Anderson said. “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.”
The Razorbacks play at LSU on Saturday afternoon.
Qualls had been averaging 11.7 points this season and snapped out of a slump on Tuesday when Arkansas lost to Missouri at home, scoring 16 points. His name should sound familiar as it was his tip-slam at the buzzer that beat Kentucky.
Harris was averaging 9.3 points this season, but he had found himself in Mike Anderson’s doghouse of late, playing just 24 minutes the last three games.
