FAMU players get suspended


The Florida A&M basketball team will have to move forward in the season without four of its player’s due to academic ineligibility, including last year’s leading scorer and rebounder Amin Stevens.

Stevens, along with guards Brandon Hosely and Christopher Watson as well as transfer forward Darryl Demps, have been deemed ineligible for the remainder of the fall semester.

Head coach Clemon Johnson said the team will have to find other ways to score without the aid of two starters.

“A lot of these guys are looking for places to pass the ball now that Amin isn’t on the court,” Johnson said.

The team will rely heavily on senior center Yannick Crowder and sophomore guard Avery Moore to carry the scoring burden.

“All this does is give us the opportunity to give other guys a chance to play,” Johnson said. “What we have to do now is find more creative ways to get our guys who can score the ball cleaner looks at the basket and easier shots. “
