Syracuse star Frank Howard suspended indefinitely on eve of NCAA Tournament opener

Frank Howard reacts

Howard, who made headlines for appearing to trip Zion Williamson last week, is out for at least the first game of the tournament. He shed little light on Howard's suspension, saying it will be "difficult" to make a change this late. "I'm not going to wait four years to get to this position to trip somebody". "Jalen's had good practices", Boeheim said on Thursday afternoon. Howard has averaged 8.9 points and team-highs of 2.9 assists and 1.5 steals in 29 games as the Orange's starting point guard. Tyus Battle will likely slide over to point guard.

Howard stepped up while Battle was out for the ACC tournament with a bruised hip. We know that.... We started the year without him... very hard to make that change now... fortunately Tyus has played the point quite a bit this year...

Syracuse will be getting standout player Tyus Battle back for the tournament, but they'll lose Howard at the same time.

What to know: Baylor has some statistical qualities on offense that trouble Syracuse, and some defensive qualities that would make the Orange optimistic.

Boeheim, asked if he knew who would start in Howard's place against Baylor, said, "Yes, I do" - but when pressed for specifics, said only, "Yes is my answer".

Stay tuned for an official announcement regarding Howard's suspension. Carey didn't play at all in five of the team's last six regular-season games.

"Fortunately, Tyus has played the point quite a bit this year", Boeheim said Wednesday. I thought the players made a great adjustment.
