As many as four varsity basketball players have been suspended following what is described as a ‘locker room incident’ at the prestigious private Christian school, Brentwood Academy, WSMV reports.
Although the school is not sharing any details about what took place, it was serious enough to warrant the cancellation of last Friday’s game.
School spokesperson Susan Shafer issued the following statement:
Last week, a number of students failed to meet the high expectations we have for them at Brentwood Academy. As a result, the students involved have been disciplined. When the school became aware of an incident on last Thursday, we immediately addressed the issue with students involved and their parents. While Brentwood Academy has been transparent about its disciplinary procedures with the students and parents involved, we are committed to protecting the privacy of our students and families. We are not going to elaborate further on student discipline.
Other news outlets have said that among those suspended is senior starter, point guard Darius Garland.
According to 247Sports, Garland is a 5-star player whose skills have ranked him No. 13 overall of college recruits. He is ranked as the No. 3 point guard, and is the No. 1 player from the state of Tennessee in his 2018 class.
