UNCW basketball coach Kevin Keatts announced Thursday that junior guard Jordon Talley has been indefinitely suspended from the team due to conduct detrimental to the team.Talley started 37 games over the last two seasons, including 16 last season when the team won both the CAA regular season and tournament titles. The junior averaged 8.5 points, 3.9 assists and 3.3 rebounds while playing the shooting guard position most of the season.Talley was also a contributor during the lone NCAA Tournament game against Duke, accounting for six points and three rebounds in 17 minutes. Keatts didn’t reveal a timetable for Talley’s return, but UNCW still has a talented starting lineup for its opener against Claflin on Nov. 11. Luckily for the Seahawks, there are still three starters returning from last season’s team, including leading scorers Chris Flemmings and Denzel Ingram.
