COLLEGE STATION – Texas A&M’s troubling string of suspensions will carry into Southeastern Conference play.
The eighth-ranked Aggies announced on Thursday night that guard D.J. Hogg will be suspended for three games for a violation of university policy, while guards J.J. Caldwell and T.J. Starks missed Thursday night’s home game against Buffalo because of suspension. No reason was given for any of the suspensions, and A&M coach Billy Kennedy will be available following Thursday night’s game.
Hogg and Caldwell had already been previously suspended to start this season. The Aggies also are missing starting guard Admon Gilder with an injured knee at least through early in SEC play.
League action starts on Dec. 30 as A&M plays at Alabama, and Hogg is scheduled to miss that game along with the conference home opener against Florida on Jan. 2, along with the Buffalo game.
Meanwhile, forward Robert Williams returned to action on Thursday night after missing two games because of a concussion. Williams, the reigning SEC defensive player of the year, also had been suspended to start the season.
