College: Suspended Marcus Smart to stay in locker roomPosted by Inside Hoops
Oklahoma State’s Marcus Smart is expected to watch Saturday’s game from the locker room instead of the stands.
University spokesman Mike Noteware told ESPN that Smart — who’ll be serving the second of his three-game suspension for shoving a fan at Texas Tech — will not be in the crowd when Oklahoma State hosts rival Oklahoma at 2 p.m. Saturday on ESPN.
Smart is not allowed to travel with the team while suspended but has been permitted to practice. His suspension ends after Tuesday’s game in Waco against Baylor.
The Cowboys (16-8, 4-7 Big 12) lost their first game without Smart on Tuesday at Texas and have dropped five straight and six of seven.
