Key player suspended

USF’s winning weekend circulated around senior Janae Stokes, who was suspended indefinitely from the women’s basketball team for a violation of team rules.

USF won two games without Stokes, the team’s leading three-point shooter with 16.

“(Stokes) did not make the trip,” said USF coach Jose Fernandez. “She is suspended from our program indefinitely.”

Fernandez declined to comment further on the issue.

Stokes is the second player lost for the season, as senior forward Porche Grant is sitting out because of personal reasons.
