In his post game radio interview with Bob Valvano on 84WHAS, Rick Pitino said Cardinal sophomore guard Kevin Ware won’t be back anytime soon. It was announced earlier this afternoon that Ware was suspended indefinitely for undisclosed reasons.
Pitino hasn’t hinted at what exactly what Ware did to earn an indefinite suspension, but it certainly doesn’t look good at this point. During the pre-game show with Paul Rogers, Pitino said he was very upset with Kevin.
Following the game tonight he was asked by the media about the situation, but didn’t elaborate too much. “I’m really not thinking too much about it. He’s suspended indefinitely,” Pitino said. “As long as we’ve got Logan, Jordan and Slime, we’re in good shape.”
Mid-season suspensions from Pitino usually don’t last too long, but this one seems different. Ware isn’t allowed to participate in any team activity during his suspension. He wasn’t on the bench tonight and isn’t even allowed to practice.
