Connecticut transfer Jamal Coombs-McDaniel and Penn State transfer Taran Buie have both been suspended for the first two regular season games at Hofstra for violating team rules.

It is that time of the season, when suspensions come to roost. Hofstra is the latest school to put players on the shelf, today suspending Connecticut transfer Jamal Coombs-McDaniel and Penn State transfer Taran Buie for the first two regular season games for violations of team rules.

The very generic violation of team rules could cover a lot of things, but it appears that something happened outside of academics based on the very terse language coming from coach Mo Cassara:

"We have high expectations for the student-athletes in our program," commented Cassara. "Taran and Jamal will be focused on their academic endeavors, while they continue to be members of our men's basketball team. We look forward to their return, but more importantly they will have to show they understand the responsibilities and obligations of being part of this program."

Hofstra is in a bit of a rebuilding mode this year, and the two transfers were expected to be contributors (although with some skepticism on impact) for the Pride.
