FSU's Reid Suspended Indefinitely
Florida State sophomore forward Ryan Reid has been suspended indefinitely by head coach Leonard Hamilton for a violation of team rules. He was cited on Saturday night by police for shooting a BB gun at a stop sign and a building near the FSU campus. "It was a very dumb thing to do and I have embarrassed not only my family, [but] my teammates, our coaching staff and the entire Florida State basketball program," Reid said in a statement. "I put myself in a situation that I should not have been in and for that I am truly sorry. I will have to work very hard to regain the trust of the many people I have hurt because of my poor choices." It is the second time Reid has been suspended from the team, as he missed nine games in the middle of last season for violating team rules. He averaged 5.6 points and 5.0 rebounds per game last season.
