Steven Rush, the N.C. A&T Aggies leading scorer on the men’s basketball team, has been suspended for this Saturday’s game against Winston-Salem State. Rush was suspended for unsportsmanlike conduct that took place in a game vs. Delaware State on February 18.
Steven Rush is a graduate of the Greensboro Day School where he played for coach Freddy Johnson. Rush began his college hardwood career at UNC-Asheville where he joined high school teammate KJ Garland to form the Bulldogs’ starting backcourt. Rush transferred to N.C. A&T where he has found success as one of the best three-point shooters in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.
Again, Steven Rush is the Aggies leading scorer and he will be forced to miss the one game on Saturday against the Aggies’ arch-rival, the Winston-Salem State Rams.
Comment from N.C. A&T:”We respect the conference’s decision,” interim N.C. A&T Athletics Director Wheeler Brown stated in a news release. “We have talked to Mr. Rush and he understands the decision and therefore is looking to put the matter behind him quickly.”
