Arizona State’s Marcus Bagley Says He Was Suspended for Tweet

Arizona State forward Marcus Bagley tweeted Tuesday that he had been suspended from the team after deciding to inform the public why he had not played in the Sun Devils' last five games.

“I was just suspended for this tweet. For Admitting I made a mistake,” Bagley tweeted.

Bagley, who has not played since Arizona State’s 84-68 victory against Northern Arizona on Nov. 10, referred to the tweet he made Sunday, stating that his recent absence from the court had “nothing to with basketball,” his “ability” or his health. The third-year sophomore forward has not been playing because he “made a mistake” and made some comments to Coach Hurley that he "shouldn't have said" after the game against NAU.
