The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets will be without junior guard Glen Rice Jr. for the first three games of the season, the team announced. Rice Jr. will be suspended for a violation of team rules, but at this time it is unknown what rule was actually broke. Rice Jr. was the Yellow Jackets second leading scorer in the 2010 season and was also second on the team in rebounding, assists, and steals. He also lead the team thin three-pointers. During the 2010 season, Rice Jr. averaged 12.8 points per game.
Georgia Tech opens up with Florida A&M tonight, so Rice Jr. will not play. He will also miss match ups with Delaware State and with Saint Joseph. Rice was a valuable wing player for the Yellow Jackets, but his absence in the first three games shouldn't have a huge impact.
