We hate beating a dead horse but...

We truly would like to give it a rest but the New Mexico State men's basketball program is becoming the gift that keeps on giving. Not only does Jahmar Young faces two court dates in February but he apparently got into it with a referee on Saturday while trying to demonstrate (on the referee) how Utah State was holding.

Do you think Marvin Menzies ever wonders when he will have his 'own' recruits in Las Cruces and not those of the previous coach?

LAS CRUCES — New Mexico State University men's basketball coach Marvin Menzies announced Monday that freshman guard Jahmar Young has been suspended for a violation of team rules. Young will not be with the team for Thursday's Western Athletic Conference game at Hawaii, but he will rejoin the Aggies on Saturday at San Jose State.

Young walked off the court during play and left the arena late in the second half of the Aggies' 100-70 victory against Utah State on Saturday at the Pan American Center.

"I talked to him today and he is in violation of team rules because of that situation," Menzies said during Monday's weekly press conference. "It had nothing to do with academics. It's a one-game suspension and he is still in our good graces and everything is OK, but he will have to suffer the repercussions of his actions... Go here for the remainder.
