Illinois suspends guards Rayvonte Rice and Aaron Cosby
Rice has missed the last six games with a broken hand but had averaged a team-high 17.2 points and 6.9 rebounds over 15 games.
“Rayvonte and Aaron have been suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules,” Groce said. “Hopefully they will make better choices and make the necessary progress to rejoin our lineup.”
Cosby missed the last two games with a retinal tear in his left eye but had averaged 7.8 points and 3.6 rebounds over 19 games.
