Carlton Bragg, Jr. suspended by Kansas

Backup power forward was one of two key cogs in Jayhawks run towards the Final Four

Kansas Head Coach Bill Self announced late Thursday night that Carlton Bragg, Jr. has been suspended indefinitely for “a violation of team rules”, according to a release from the school.

NBCsports.com mentioned in a short article that, “this violation is not connected to the alleged incident in McCarthy Hall on December 17th.”  Bragg is currently a witness in an investigation of an alleged sexual assault that involved a 16-year old girl which happened in the dorm on the Kansas campus where the basketball team lives.

This will hurt the Jayhawks both short term in their long-awaited Big 12/SEC showdown at Kentucky on Saturday and possibly getting back to the Final Four.  Bragg was one of their key men that clogged up the lanes inside.  But without him there for the foreseeable future, look for Landen Lukas to shoulder much of the load inside.
