“We have suspended Jerome for conduct detrimental to the team,” head coach Pat Skerry said in a statement. “The suspension is effective immediately and no other statements will be issued.”
Hairston, a 6-foot-3 Wyoming native, is averaging 5.0 points and 1.8 assists this season. A year ago, he made the CAA all-rookie team and put up 9.9 points and 2.5 assists per game. He has struggled a bit this season, scoring a combined two points in blowout losses to Villanova and Kansas.
Without Hairston available, expect Vermont transfer Four McGlynn to play more at the point guard spot. He's been a scoring asset off the bench after sitting out last season.
