Xavier basketball player suspended indefinitely

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Xavier University head coach Chris Mack announced Friday that senior center Kenny Frease has been suspended indefinitely from the Xavier men's basketball team for not fulfilling all the responsibilities of a Xavier Basketball player.

"Kenny has not handled his daily responsibilities on and off the playing floor that we expect from every one of our players here at Xavier," said Mack. "Until Kenny proves to me that he wants to be a part of our team by handling those responsibilities, he will not be a part of our program. I am hopeful that Kenny will work his way back to being a part of this team at some point. "

Frease, a preseason Atlantic 10 Conference Second Team selection, averaged 11.7 points and 7.1 rebounds a game as a junior last season.
