Last night word got out that senior guard Patrick Holloway has been suspended for six games by Dave Paulsen:

I had heard some talk in recent days of Holloway being in danger of being kicked off the team due to a number of missed classes. Looks like Paulsen is putting his foot down on the matter and will start the season with very little depth or experience in the back court. With him out I’d expect to see Otis Livingston starting at point guard with Marquise Moore playing the two like we saw in the open scrimmage.
These first six games without Holloway could be rough as he’s the team’s only proven outside shooter going into this season. We already knew freshmen would need to play a lot this year but now they are in a situation where the back court has almost no depth. Kameron Murrell has looked promising so far so he and Livingston will see a lot of the early minutes in Holloway’s absence. I would also expect to see more of Myles Tate whose experience will definitely get him some earlier minutes this season.
