Syracuse Star Frank Howard Suspended Indefinitely for Violation of Athletic Department Policy

The team announced star guard Frank Howard had been suspended "for an indefinite period of time" due to a violation of athletic department policy.

Syracuse is hoping to replicate recent NCAA Tournament runs that saw the Orange advance to the Final Four in 2016 and the Sweet 16 a year ago.

Howard is averaging 8.9 points, 2.0 rebounds and 2.9 assists so far this season.

Against Pitt, Howard dropped 18 points in 37 minutes in a 73-59 win in the ACC tournament.

Howard will not be with the team when it begins March Madness with a matchup against No. 9-seeded Baylor in Salt Lake City on Thursday (tip-off from Vivint Smart Home Arena is at 9:57 p.m. ET on truTV).

Guard Tyus Battle leads the Orange with 17.2 points per game but will have to get to the paint to get his points.

Without Howard, the Orange could continue to use Buddy Boeheim in the starting lineup. A son of the head coach, the 6-foot-5 Boeheim has already had an increased role of late, and he scored 35 total points on 11-of-22 shooting during Syracuse's two ACC tournament games. I thought the players made a great adjustment.

Syracuse will have to take on Baylor without senior point guard Frank Howard. "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".
