Henry Suspended Again

FAYETTEVILLE – Jason Henry has been suspended for the third time in his brief collegiate career.

Arkansas' 6-foot-6 freshman wing player was suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules by Razorback coach John Pelphrey Tuesday and did not travel with the team later in the day to the Southeastern Conference Tournament in Tampa, Fla., where the Hogs will face Florida Thursday night.

"Part of being a Razorback is meeting the high standards of the University of Arkansas and the basketball program," Pelphrey said in a statement. "(Jason) will remain a part of the team, but he will not travel to Tampa for the SEC Tournament."

It marks the third time Henry has been suspended this season. He missed the team's Red-White exhibition in November and missed three games during nonconference play as part of a separate indefinite suspension. The West Memphis native also missed three games recovering from a knee surgery on Dec. 29.

Henry's season has been up-and-down since SEC play began. He was the team's third-leading rebounder (5.4) in league games and averaged 8.4 points, while starting twice.

He scored a career-high 27 points in Arkansas' overtime loss at South Carolina on Feb. 21, but logged just five minutes 10 days later in Arkansas' home finale loss to Ole Miss.
