This is not how you want to start your season. Southeast Missouri forwards Tyler Stone and Nino Johnson will miss the first two games of the 2013-14 season due to a violation of team rules.
No specifics on what that violation is was available.
“I am disappointed to announce that Tyler and Nino will be suspended for the first two games,” said Southeast head coach Dickey Nutt. “No one is bigger than this program. We have rules and consequences in place and our players are held accountable.”
The Redhawks open the season against defending Atlantic 10 Conference champion Saint Louis Friday. The two forwards will also miss SEMO’s game against NAIA Central Baptist on Monday
Stone and Johnson will return to the court when SEMO plays at IUPUI Nov. 16.
