Suspensions: Renardo Sidney, the Mississippi State center who made his long-awaited college debut Saturday in a loss to Virginia Tech (he scored 12 points), has been suspended again. This time, by the Bulldogs for one game after an “outburst” at practice. Kansas State has suspended its two best players, guard Jacob Pullen and forward Curtis Kelly, for taking more clothing than they paid for at a Manhattan, Kansas clothing store. (Peter Warrick and Laveranues Coles aren’t impressed.) Pullen will be suspended for three games; Kelly will miss more. Both were out last night when UNLV beat Kansas State, 63-59. Fortunately, K-State’s next few opponents are jokers, so missing Pullen and Kelly is unlikely to have a major impact on their NCAA tournament seeding. The bigger question is how the committee views the victory for UNLV, should the Rebels wind up on the bubble.
