Morningstar suspended for first semester

Brady Morningstar was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated Saturday morning. Coach Bill Self announced Saturday afternoon that Morningstar would be suspended from first semester games, but would remain on the team.

“We are aware of the situation,” Self said. “We are also still fact finding. Regardless of the details that concern the reason for him being stopped, he broke team rules that have been much more stringent since last week. Brady was in serious violation of curfew. Because of that and his extremely poor judgment last night, I have decided to suspend him for the first semester from all competition and travel. Brady will remain a member of our team and will participate in all other team functions. We will support him through this, but needless to say I am very disappointed in the sequence of events that took place last night.”

Morningstar was booked into the Douglas County Jail at around 3:42 am on Saturday and was released on a $250 bond.
