Little information is as of yet available, but senior forward Sheray Thomas -- he of the tumor and fan grumbling -- has been suspended for the two exhibition games and the season opener against Miami (OH) for what coach Tubby Smith termed "a violation of team rules."
The Wildcats open their preseason schedule on Thursday against Lindsay Wilson College. Smith has set his opening lineup, with senior Lukasz Obrzut at the center spot and Randolph Morris at the power forward position. Bobby Perry will slide over to the 'three', while Joe Crawford and Ramel Bradley will man the backcourt.
More to come.
