Kent State players suspended for profane video


Four Kent State basketball players were suspended for Saturday’s MAC championship game over a video of them launching a vulgar chant at their upcoming opponent.

Kent State beat Ohio 67-61 in Friday’s semifinal, setting up a game against Akron for the title and an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. After the win over Ohio, however, forward DJ Johnson shared a video to Snapchat showing him and several teammates chanting “f— Akron” ahead of the matchup as well as calling out multiple Akron players. The video has since been deleted.
