Bearcats' Mitchell Suspended

By Josh Herwitt - February 15, 2008

Cincinnati coach Mick Cronin has surprised plenty of people this season with quality conference wins over Louisville, Syracuse, Villanova, Pittsburgh and West Virginia, but the second-year coach now will have to do it without Alvin Mitchell.

The freshman forward, who has started just one game and appeared in 21 others, was suspended on Friday for violating team rules with the potential to return if his behavior improves before the end of the season.

"We have standards and expectations for our players on the court, in the classroom and in their individual behavior," Cronin explained without saying what violation Mitchell had committed. "Alvin is not meeting those expectations at this time."

In his first season in Cincy, the Fort Lauderdale, Fla., averaged 2.8 points for the Bearcats, which currently sit at 12-12 overall, 7-5 in the Big East and host South Florida Wednesday.
