Hoops: Railey suspended, says Bone
Center Jordan Railey, a junior college transfer from Iowa State last season, has been suspended from team activities for a violation of team rules. The 7-foot-0, 245-pound big man, who sat out last season in accordance with NCAA transfer rules, was expected to compete for a starting spot this season and received heavy amounts of praise from the Cougars' fifth year head coach during the offseason.
Bone did not give a timetable for his return and the reasoning for Railey's suspension was unspecified.
Railey played his high school basketball in Beaverton (Ore.) and has two season's of eligibility remaining after two seasons at Iowa State where he played sparingly in 38 games for the Cylcones.
In 25 games his freshman season, Railey averaged 2.0 points and 1.5 rebounds per game while tallying 20 blocks. His playing time was limited his sophomore season, appearing in just 13 games and averaging just 0.5 points and 0.7 rebounds a game.
He arrived at WSU weighing 264-pounds and contributed his struggles during his sophomore season to his weight. On the official roster for this upcoming season, Railey was listed at 245-pounds, dropping nearly 20 pounds in hopes of being more agile around the rim.
Demarquise Johnson is already out with a shin injury and Lawhorn having already been suspended, it's been a rough start to the preseason for a Washington State program searching for questions after several sub-par seasons under Bone.
