Four Players Suspended Three Games Each Staff
Posted Oct 27, 2006

Four Cal State Fullerton basketball players will have to miss the first three games of the season according to head coach Bob Burton.

Senior point guard Bobby Brown, junior wing Frank Robinson, Junior forward Scott Cutley and senior center Curtis Battles will all miss non-conference games against NAIA foes Cal Maritime (Nov. 10) and Hope University (Nov. 14) as well as the road opener against Texas-San Antonio (Nov. 22).

Scholarship players Brown, Cutley and Robinson apparently supplied books for three walk-on players. Battles was one of the walk-on players receiving the benefit as were two others who are no longer on the team.

The NCAA states that a suspension is in order for supplying books to other players which cost over $100. In two cases, the books were less than $100 but when taxes were added the limit was reached.

According to the Orange County Register, head coach Bob Burton "set about scheduling teams he thought they could beat without three of their projected starters." Burton told he never stated this and the last thing he needs is to get other teams fired up about playing Fullerton. "Texas-San Antonio would be tough even if we had all our players."
