Scott Suggs to redshirt


by: Griffin Bennett

Announced today by Romar on a conference call, the senior shooting guard will redshirt this season after suffering a broken toe before the season.

This is bad news for the team which is in dire need on on-court leadership. It appears to have been Suggs’ decision as Romar said that he was surprised by his decision but it makes sense.

I’m not sure that I quite agree with that but I’ll trust the player and his confidence on how the injury is healing. Being the leader of the Scott Suggs bandwagon, I feel like it is my duty to support any and all of his decisions.


The loss of his veteran presence will be huge to a team that lacks a leader on the court. Suggs has been very vocal on the bench during timeouts and I was hoping that would only improve once he started playing.

On the flip side, without a single recruit signed for next season, Suggs will be a much-needed roster addition. With the potential loss of Ross and/or Wroten, the team could be in need of some guard depth.

More to come later… Bow down.
