Tennessee head coach Cuonzo Martin suspended starting forward Kenny Hall indefinitely for "conduct detrimental to the team" prior to the Vols' game against Arkansas on Wednesday night.
Hall, a starter in 16 of Tennessee's 26 games, is averaging 6.2 points, 4.5 rebounds and one block per game. Martin opened his post-game press conference on the subject but didn't divulge the specifics of Hall's suspension.
"You have to do the right things on and off the court," Martin said.
The Vols (14-12, 6-5 SEC) will travel without Hall to Alabama for a Saturday matchup against a team facing similar circumstances. Tony Mitchell and JaMychal Green, the Crimson Tide's two leading scorers, are suspended indefinitely as well.
Martin said he was surprised in Hall's actions and that there would be no timetable for Hall's return.
"Indefinite," Martin said. "Gotta do the right things."
Tennessee didn't seem to miss Hall much on Wednesday night as the Vols won their fourth straight game Wednesday night against the Razorbacks, 77-58. Six Volunteers scored in double figures.
Despite losing one of his most featured post players, Martin doesn't believe the suspension will adversely affect his team.
"Not at all, we'll continue to push forward," Martin said.
