Georgia Tech guard Glen Rice Jr.’s suspension will continue into the Yellow Jackets’ Tuesday night game against Clemson. Coach Brian Gregory said on the ACC teleconference Monday morning that Rice will not play in the game or practice with the team Monday.
Rice was suspended indefinitely prior to Tech’s Saturday game against Virginia Tech, a 74-73 overtime loss, and did not travel with the team to Blacksburg, Va. The Jackets played one of their best games of the season, losing on a desperation 3-pointer by Virginia Tech guard Dorenzo Hudson as time expired.
“I was proud of the way our guys competed for 45 minutes and I thought we played some of our best basketball,” Gregory said.
Rice, Tech’s leading scorer and rebounder, also was suspended for the first three games of the season.
