Kent State MBB: Four players suspended for MAC Championship for video

Four Kent State men’s basketball players—DJ Johnson, Malique Jacobs, Cli’Ron Hornbeak and Julius Rollins—have been suspended for at least part of tonight’s MAC championship game against Akron.

The four players appeared in a video posted to social media, showing a raucous locker room celebration after the team’s MAC tournament semifinal win over Ohio to reach the title game against rival Akron. In the video, players rapped along with an expletive-laced song that took direct shots at the Zips, calling out Akron leading scorer Ali Ali by name and other players by number.

“The Mid-American Conference has announced that four members of the Kent State University men’s basketball team have received disciplinary action for a social media post which occurred on Friday night,” the MAC said in a statement.
