Bill Self Suspends Brady Morningstar for First Semester

Oct. 3, 2009

LAWRENCE, Kan. – Kansas men’s basketball head coach Bill Self announced Saturday he has suspended junior guard Brady Morningstar for the first semester.

Self said Morningstar, a returning starter from last season’s 27-8 team, was arrested for suspicion of driving while intoxicated early Saturday morning.

“We are aware of the situation,” Self said. “We are also still fact finding. Regardless of the details that concern the reason for him being stopped, he broke team rules that have been much more stringent since last week. Brady was in serious violation of curfew. Because of that and his extremely poor judgment last night, I have decided to suspend him for the first semester from all competition and travel. Brady will remain a member of our team and will participate in all other team functions. We will support him through this, but needless to say I am very disappointed in the sequence of events that took place last night.”
