Arkansas suspends Ky Madden

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Arkansas coach Mike Anderson says junior Ky Madden will be suspended for two exhibition games and the season opener for a violation of team rules.

Madden averaged 4.2 points and 2.4 rebounds per game last season for the Razorbacks, who were 19-13. The junior had a season-high 11 points and eight rebounds in a loss to Arizona State.

Anderson says Madden's suspension will begin when Arkansas hosts Missouri Southern in an exhibition game on Friday night. He will also miss an exhibition game against Northeastern State on Nov. 5, as well as the regular-season opener against Southern Illinois-Edwardsville on Nov. 8.

The violation was not disclosed.
