After a win over FIU Sunday Frank Martin declined to elaborate on Sindarius Thornwell’s suspension, but by Friday he was ready to delve a little deeper into the situation. Martin would not elaborate on what caused the suspension, and said he didn’t know how long it would last, but he confirmed Thornwell will be back at some point.
Thornwell will not play against Seton Hall next week, but will make the trip to New York with his teammates. Even though he’s suspended, Thornwell is still allowed to practice and travel with the team; he’s essentially doing everything except playing in the games. Martin said every player must face the consequences for their actions. He doesn’t have a different set of rules for the star players. Thornwell’s model behavior over his career is what earned him the right to return, at some point, from his transgression.
Check out what Martin had to say about Thornwell’s suspension and how the team is coping with his loss:
