On Wednesday afternoon, new broke that Syracuse basketball star Frank Howard has been suspended for the NCAA Tournament.

No. 8 Syracuse plays No. 9 Baylor in the NCAA tournament's Round of 64 on Thursday at 9:47 p.m.

There are no further details and the phrasing is interesting.

The big 6-foot-5 point guard has played in 131 career games at Syracuse; this season, he's started 28 of 29 games and averages 8.9 points per game.

Howard denied trying to trip Williamson.

Tyus Battle, Howard's backcourt mate, would seem a likely candidate, though Boeheim would not tip his hand.

Howard stepped up while Battle was out for the ACC tournament with a bruised hip.

Boeheim, asked if he knew who would start in Howard's place against Baylor, said, "Yes, I do" - but when pressed for specifics, said only, "Yes is my answer".

Battle said players did not find out about Howard's suspension until the school released its statement roughly 10 minutes before the team was scheduled to be on the floor for practice. Carey didn't play at all in five of the team's last six regular-season games. We started the year without him... very hard to make that change now... fortunately Tyus has played the point quite a bit this year... I thought the players made a great adjustment. "I mean, it's a tough situation to be in, we as a team, and I know we're going to pick up the slack and we're going to be ready to play". "And we're going to have to make that same adjustment this week with a different guy going".
