An update to Sand Creek boys basketball suspension story.

All of the players on the varsity boys basketball team except for one player will be suspended for one game. School District 49 say those students defied an agreement between CHSAA and the school to correct issues and move forward in an ethical and productive manner.

There will be a meeting Friday morning at seven o'clock at Sand Creek.

The Scorpions forfeited a game that they played in a month ago on January 2nd against Palmer, for using an ineligible player. According to CHSAA, the school reported the incident on Monday and decided to forfeit the contest.

A transfer student played in the game, the school later discovered that there were some issues when it came to the transfer student, who does not have varsity eligibility.

We have also learned that a Sand Creek assistant coach, Trey Harris was fired and that upset the players, so much so, they wore t-shirts on Monday night that said he had been "unjustly fired".

According to the school district the players t-shirt protest contradicts the school’s compliance with CHSAA’s expectations, Sand Creek athletic director Jared Felice, informed CHSAA of the incident.

On Monday, school administrators and coaches met with the varsity basketball team to explain the consequences of the violation. They told the student-athletes the importance of complying with CHSAA and the possible implications of defiance.
