KSU coach Jimmy Lallathin suspended one game

Kennesaw State men’s basketball coach Jimmy Lallathin will miss the Owls’ second game of the season as he serves a one-game suspension.

The move comes after KSU self-reported violations committed by the men’s basketball program to the NCAA.

After coaching the Owls during their season opener at Syracuse on Nov. 14, Lallathin will serve his one-game suspension Nov. 16 when the team plays at California. Associate head coach David Rivers will lead the team in Lallathin’s absence.
