Kansas State's Henriquez reinstated to team
Tuesday, January 24, 2012
LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) -- Kansas State coach Frank Martin says forward Jordan Henriquez has been reinstated and is available for Wednesday night's game at Texas Tech.
Martin announced last Thursday that Henriquez had been suspended indefinitely for conduct detrimental to the team. Henriquez returned to practice on Tuesday and traveled with the 22nd-ranked Wildcats (14-4, 3-3 Big 12) to Lubbock.
Martin says Henriquez "just lost his focus and needed time to understand his priorities."
The 6-foot-11 junior has played in 17 games this season, starting six, and is averaging 7.1 points and 5.1 rebounds in 18.9 minutes.
Martin says he has not decided if Henriquez will play against the Red Raiders (7-11, 0-6).
