Kansas Suspends Mario Little Indefinitely

by David Cassilo / @dcassilo

Josh Selby is making his Kansas debut on Saturday, but it looks like it will be one guard in, one guard out for the Jayhawks.

According to police, senior guard Mario Little was arrested after an altercation with his girlfriend early Thursday morning. At his girlfriend’s apartment, Little got into a fight with a 19-year old man. After his girlfriend fled for a friend’s, Little went there, pushed another woman and then battered his girlfriend.

Others at the scene eventually broke up the dispute and held Little back until police arrived. He was released on bond Thursday morning.

Little has since been suspended by Head Coach Bill Self. The senior accepts full responsibility and is completely behind the suspension.

From The Kansas City Star:

Little responded to the allegations against him in a statement.

“I apologize for what happened last night,” Little said. “I feel awful, and I understand that I will have to deal with the consequences of my actions. I accept responsibility for those actions, and I apologize to my teammates for being irresponsible.”

While the suspension is currently called indefinite, it would not be a surprise if Little has played his last game as a Jayhawk. Just a few weeks ago Villanova suspended freshman JayVaughn Pinkston the entire season for a similar incident. If this the end for Little, he finished the season averaging 6.2 ppg and 3.7 rpg.

    What the f*ck is wrong with these worms. You don’t punch a woman. This makes me more infuriated than more things in life.

    Like many college players, Little looks up to NBA players. His hero happens to be Lance Stephenson.

    no laughing matter here. Always sad to hear these sort of things. Hopefully he and the young lady can move past it….sport is such a microscopic portion of an athlete’s life in the grand scheme of things, you’ve got to learn to be a well-rounded person….was just watching Basketball Wives and seen Kenny Anderson explaining to his 2 daughters that their mother kept them away from him….stuff like that is sad to me, anyways like I said hopefully these two move past this all
