2 Loyola players suspended

November 11, 1992|By Paul McMullen | Paul McMullen,Staff Writer

Standout forward Michael Reese and Chad Anderson have been suspended from the Loyola College basketball team because of violations of the college's disciplinary policy.

In announcing the suspension, athletic director Joe Boylan said that the two players were involved in unrelated violations of Loyola policy. He did not say what the violations involved, and he did not speculate on how long the suspensions would last, or if they would continue into the season. The Greyhounds open Dec. 1 at Towson State.

"They were involved in separate violations that had nothing to do with basketball," Boylan said. "Neither of them practiced today [yesterday], and they will not be able to practice until the matter is dealt with. I expect a resolution of the matter next week."

Anderson, a 6-foot-6 sophomore, played sparingly as a freshman, but Reese is one of the Greyhounds' top players. A 6-8 junior, he averaged 16.1 points and led the Greyhounds in rebounds (6.6) and field-goal percentage (50.1). He sat out the 1990-91 season, after transferring to Loyola from Boston College.

Reese figured to be a key player for the Greyhounds this season, following the graduation of second all-time leading scorer Kevin Green, swingman Kevin Anderson and point guard Tracy Bergan, who withdrew from the college last spring.
