LAWRENCE, Kan., Feb. 21 (UPI) -- Kansas junior guard Tyshawn Taylor has been placed on indefinite suspension for violating team rules, head Coach Bill Self said Monday.

In a release issued by the school, Self didn't reveal what Taylor was alleged to have done wrong.

"Although we are disappointed in Tyshawn, he will remain a member of our team and practice with our team until he is reinstated for competition," Self said.

The suspension raised questions about whether second-ranked Kansas still has the firepower to compete for a national title.

Taylor played a key role on the team, starting all but one of the Jayhawks' 27 games while averaging 8.8 points with 4.7 assists per contest.
