OSU suspends basketball players Dillard, Dawson

by: Nathan Thompson Updated:

OSU basketball players Davon Dillard and Zack Dawson have been suspended indefinitely for “failure to meet team standards.”

An Oklahoma State official told FOX23 the two players are still practicing with the team and should be reinstated to play at some point this season. The official said the suspensions are not related to the FBI investigation that led to the arrest of associate head coach Lamont Evans.

There is some positive news regarding Dillard too. He has been medically cleared to play after having minor foot surgery in September.

Dillard is a junior guard/forward. He played in 25 games last season and averaged 5.7 points and 3.2 rebounds. Dawson is a true freshman guard. He averaged 26.5 points, eight rebounds, and four assists his senior season at South Miami High School in Florida.

The Cowboys tip off their regular season Friday at home against Pepperdine at 7:30 pm.
