NMSU announced tonight that Christian Kabongo has been suspended indefinitely from the men's basketball team. CK is an emotional player but Sunday's events at UTEP kind of forced the school and the coach to do something.
I was expecting a benching or something of that nature and was somewhat surprised by the suspension, but it is what it is and I think the Aggies have players capable of filling the void.
"In the interim, I think guys will both have more opportunities and some who haven't had opportunities will have some. That's the advantage of having depth is being able to go to different guys," Marvin Menzies said.
The two likely candidates to fill in for Kabongo, at least in the starting lineup are Bandja Sy, who was a starter for early parts of last year and who needs some sort of spark to get him going offensively. Freshman Daniel Mullings is a high energy guard, but probably not polished enough offensively to start. I also think freshman Terrel de Rouen should play more. Menzies said on the coaches show that he expects Remi Barry to play tomorrow or at least in the upcoming games.
