Jacquiese Holcombe Suspended


Junior forward Jacquiese Holcombe has been suspended indefinitely by coach Rick Stansbury, an MSU spokesman confirmed this afternoon. No specific reason was given, but Holcombe is still on the team. Stansbury is not commenting on it.

Odd thing is, Holcombe is going to be redshirted this season because of a stress fracture of his left tibia. He played in seven games early this season, averaging 3.0 points and 2.0 rebounds per game. He’s remained active even on the bench, drawing praise from teammates for his enthusiasm, which has been evident to even casual observers. He could be seen leading a Maroon & White cheer late in State’s win over Alabama a couple of weeks ago. “He gives us a lot of energy every game,” starting guard Barry Stewart said that night.

Holcombe (6-foot-5, 205 pounds) transferred in this year from Georgia Perimeter College, where he was a second-team All-American and the Region 17 Player of the Year.

    I guess we all know what that is going to lead to…

    See you playing somewhere else next year, Holcombe.

    I don’t know, that would mean sitting out yet another year.
