Illini guards Rayvonte Rice, Aaron Cosby suspended indefinitely
Illinois guards Rayvonte Rice and Aaron Cosby are suspended indefinitely from the team, coach John Groce said in a statement Saturday.
The two players were both expected to possibly return from injuries in Saturday’s noon game against Penn State.
Groce said the players violated team rules but did not elaborate in the statement.
Rice started the first 15 games before breaking his hand. He led the Illini with 17.2 points and 6.9 rebounds per game.
Cosby played the first 19 games before a retinal tear in his left eye caused him to miss the last two games. He averaged 7.8 points per game.
