Pitino suspends 3 players for rest of the season 02 Mar 16

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota coach Richard Pitino has suspended guards Kevin Dorsey, Nate Mason and Dupree McBrayer for the remainder of the season, stemming from a sexually explicit video that appeared on Dorsey’s social media accounts.

Pitino announced the punishment Tuesday in a statement issued by the university, calling his decision “the best thing for the basketball program” in an attempt to “build a strong and respectful culture.”

The clip was posted Friday on Dorsey’s Instagram and Twitter feeds, both of which were disabled about a half-hour later.
