Curtis Kelly Will Play Against Colorado

New, 1 comment

Well word has come down out of Manhattan that Curtis Kelly has won his appeal and will play the remainder of the season for Kansas State.

Kelly had been under review for supposedly another violation of the student-athlete handbook. He had to sit out three games earlier this year that seem tied to a violation of this agreement but at the time Frank Martin related it to poor practice habits.

It has been an up and down year for Kelly to say the least. In addition to the three game suspension for handbook violations he also was suspended six games for improper benefits received.

Picked by some to be a first team All Big 12 player this season his play when he does make it onto the court has not justified that kind of hype. His current averages are 9.9 points and 4.9 rebounds.

Frank Martin indicated in a somewhat tense question and answer session with reporters that Kelly will play on Saturday against Colorado and that he has been practicing with the team like normal.

No word on if Kelly will start or come off the bench against the Buffs.
