Sophomore Forward Alex Thompson Back With Auburn Basketball Team

He reportedly will travel with the team to Clemson.

Sophomore forward Alex Thompson is back with the Auburn basketball team after serving a semester long suspension according to multiple beat-writers on Twitter. The first report I saw was by Alex Byington of the Opelika-Auburn News.

No official word has been given on why Thompson was suspended. We have a strong suspicion based on things overheard when Thompson was speaking to other players the night Bruce Pearl's show cause was lifted, but were never able to confirm anything.

Thompson will be a welcome addition to the line-up given his size. At 6'8", and close to 215lbs, he can provide a welcome relief for Cinmeon Bowers in the middle.
