N.C. State sophomore guard Markell Johnson was suspended for the Wolfpack’s home game Saturday against UNC Greensboro, the school announced an hour before tipoff.
The release said Johnson “has been suspended indefinitely for a violation of the Student-Athlete Code of Conduct. We will not have further comment on this matter at the current time.”
Johnson, the 6-1 guard from Cleveland, Ohio, had started all 10 games this season for N.C. State. He is coming off a career-high in points (17), steals (4) and minutes (36) after a 88-69 win over UMKC last weekend.
Coming into the UNCG game, Johnson was tied for first in the ACC in assists and second in steals.
