According to a report by the Houston Chronicle's Sam Kahn Jr. (congrats on the new gig, by the way Sam), Houston Cougars guard Adam Brown was suspended for violating team rules on Friday. Brown will miss the the Cougars' Saturday date hosting the UAB Blazers. His status for the rest of the season is unknown at this point. Houston will play two more games after UAB, visiting Tulane next Wednesday, and hosting Rice the Saturday after next, before the Conference USA tourney begins.
Brown was averaging 13 points and 2.9 assists per game for the struggling Cougars. He was also one of the team's only reliable threats from three-point range, so the team will have to lean on Darian Thibodeaux more in the near future. It's not known yet who the Cougars will use in Brown's absence at shooting guard, Nick Haywood and Trumaine Johnson are among a host of players who could receive additional playing time.
Cougars head coach James Dickey refused to comment on Brown's status going forward.
