Creighton University suspends Maurice Watson, Jr.
from men’s basketball program


Omaha, NE – Feb. 22, 2017 –On Feb. 13, Creighton University suspended Maurice Watson Jr. from all athletic-related activities for alleged actions that are contrary to University policies and core values.

No additional information regarding the suspension will be released at this time. The University treats all students fairly and equally, and values their privacy.

Senior day for men’s basketball is Tuesday, Feb. 28, and Watson will not be participating in post-game activities. Given the tremendous support for Creighton men’s basketball by its fans, University officials feel it is necessary to share the reason behind Watson’s absence from the upcoming event.

Creighton’s athletics program is based upon the Catholic, Jesuit mission of the University. Program officials, coaches, and staff always strive to administer the program according to the University’s highest values and standards.

WTF. Totally shocked. Wonder what happened as I am sure everyone is. If it happened on Feb. 13, that means that the team has already known about it I would think since then and played games, practice, etc. Damn.

This is clearly very bad and extremely disappointing regardless of the circumstances that led to the suspension. Disappointing that Mo ends his career at Creighton like this and disappointing the fans won't be able to say goodbye at home on senior night. Let's all hope whatever it is that led to the suspension doesn't involve a victim or any long term harm to anyone involved, Mo included.

Even without knowing the details, it's heartbreaking. I'm praying it's something trivial like a questionable contact with a booster or agent or something similar. I've had the privilege of meeting Mo a few times and he presents himself as well as any player could on behalf of CU. I hope whatever this is doesn't influence that or prevent him from being that role model and a potential face of CU for the future.

Please don't be something bad. Please.
