Howard suspends several student athletes, not competitive athletic program

Howard University has suspended several student-athletes from competition for possible NCAA infractions, but the school has not suspended its entire competitive athletics program, according to NBCWashington.com.

The school sent out a statement to NBCWashington News4 that read: “Howard University is conducting an internal investigation of possible NCAA rules-violations. As a result of this process, the University temporarily withheld a number of student-athletes from competition as a self-imposed action. Most teams will compete as scheduled. We are working diligently to fully resolve this matter as quickly as possible. In order to protect the integrity of this review, we are unable to share additional details at this time.”
