Potentially good news for NC State’s Basketball team who will travel to Miami on Saturday for a big match up vs the Hurricanes – the Hurricanes have indefinitely suspended forward Raymond Hicks.
Miami, already down two starting forwards due to injury, suspended forward Raymond Hicks “indefinitely” for violating team policy. Hicks, a 6-7 junior, started the Canes’ last game and averaged 5.6 points and 2.7 rebounds per game.
The Hurricanes (9-14, 2-7) will have just seven scholarship players on their roster for tonight’s game against the Eagles (16-6, 7-2) at BankUnited Center. Forwards Anthony King (wrist) and Jimmy Graham (thumb) are also out for the season.
State needs to add two more wins to the record to insure a winning regular season record in Coach Lowe’s first season and (probably) secure an NIT bid. Any dream of an NCAA berth took a severe hit last night when the Pack lost at Georgia Tech.
