And now for the bad news

While it's been an offseason of accolades and praise for Oakland this offseason, the team announced junior Drew Maynard (Lake Orion) has been suspended from the team indefinitely for "violating team policies."
Maynard will not be involved with any team practices or workouts, effective immediately.
Oakland coach Greg Kampe said the suspension is not related to any legal or academic trouble with the 6-foot-7 guard.
Kampe declined to elaborate on the matter except to say "We're prepared to play without him."
Is there a chance Maynard could get reinstated?
"He's going to have to jump through a lot of hoops. That's one of the things he's good at, so we'll see what happens," Kampe said.
The announcement, made by the team, comes three days before the team's season-opening practice.
Maynard made seven starts in 32 games played in 2009-10, averaging 4.7 points per game and 2.4 rebounds per game. He scored a season-high 18 points at No. 5 Syracuse (12/22/09) and tallied his first-ever double-double at Seattle University (12/17/09) with 10 points and 10 rebounds.
The Grizzlies routed the Summit League last season on their way to the school's second-ever NCAA tournament berth and is heavily favored to win the league again.
