Stanford senior guard Christian Sanders has been suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules, Cardinal men's basketball coach Johnny Dawkins announced Thursday.
The 6-foot-5 point guard has started 24 of Stanford's 27 games this season. He has averaged 4.3 points and a team-best 2.6 assists per game this season.
A Houston native, Sanders posted a career-best 10 assists in the win over No. 11 Oregon and scored a career-high 23 in the victory over Green Bay on Nov. 13 in the 2015-16 season opener.
"As a member of the Stanford men's basketball program, our student-athletes are held to a certain standard," Dawkins said. "It is a privilege to represent Stanford University. We must hold Christian accountable for not meeting his obligation to our program."
Stanford (15-12, 8-8 Pac-12) closes the regular-season schedule at Arizona State on Thursday (March 3) at 8 p.m. PT, and at No. 18 Arizona on Saturday (March 5) at 1 p.m. PT.
