Post Tasha Humphrey suspended for six games

Wednesday October 11, 2006

A few weeks back, Georgia all-American Tasha Humphrey was arrested for underage possession of alcohol. University rules require an automatic suspension lasting 10% of the season for such an offense, and that’s three games for basketball. Coach Landers decided to double the suspension “to underscore the severity of her actions at a time when there is a school crackdown on alcohol abuse.”

We’re all familiar by now with the crackdown on underage drinking in Athens, and a high-profile student-athlete caught in the dragnet won’t be treated lightly.

The suspension means that Humphrey will miss the first six games of the season including big early-season contests against Rutgers and Stanford.
