Ohio State women’s basketball junior guard Raven Ferguson has been suspended for the first three games of the 2013-14 regular season by head coach Kevin McGuff for a violation of team rules, according to an OSU press release.
“I’ve really enjoyed getting to know Raven and having the opportunity to coach her, so it makes this extremely disappointing,” McGuff said in the press release. “She is a good kid, but her actions have not been in line with what the standards of this program are and will be in the future. Hopefully she can make some behavioral changes, and after this suspension, come back and make a positive impact on our program.”
Ferguson is scheduled to sit out games at West Virginia Friday, against Florida Atlantic Sunday and Virginia Commonwealth Nov. 14. She is set to be eligible to return to the court for OSU Nov. 17 in Athens, Ga., against Georgia.
An OSU spokesman told The Lantern in an email that he is unable to “provide any additional information other than it was a violation of team rules.”
Ferguson did not immediately respond to The Lantern’s request for comment.
OSU is scheduled to start its 2013-14 season against the Mountaineers Friday at 5:30 p.m. in Morgantown W. Va.
