Arkansas' B.J. Young suspended for season-opener
The start of the season is three days away, but quite a few players won't be taking part. A portion of those sitting out are doing so due to suspension, and another high-profile player just got punished. Mike Anderson said Monday night that his star wing, sophomore B.J. Young, will not play Friday.

The start of the season is three days away, but quite a few players won't be taking part. You can see who here.
A portion of those sitting out are doing so due to suspension, and another high-profile player just got punished. Arkansas said Monday night that sophomore star wing B.J. Young, would miss the team's next exhibition game as well as the opener. That exhibition game came Monday night, against LeMoyne-Owen. The Hogs start their season on Friday against Sam Houston State.
Young is being disciplined for a violation of team rules. Arkansas coach Mike Anderson didn't go into more detail beyond that Monday night, following the exhibition.
Young put up 15.3 points per game last season, and Anderson told CBSSports.com this summer how Young has become an improved player and will be critical to the team's success this year.
