On Feb. 13, Creighton University suspended Maurice Watson Jr. from all athletic-related activities for alleged actions that are contrary to University policies and core values.

No additional information regarding the suspension will be released at this time. The University treats all students fairly and equally, and values their privacy.

Senior Day for men’s basketball is Tuesday, Feb. 28, and Watson will not be participating in post-game activities. Given the tremendous support for Creighton men’s basketball by its fans, University officials feel it is necessary to share the reason behind Watson’s absence from the upcoming event.

Creighton’s athletics program is based upon the Catholic, Jesuit mission of the University. Program officials, coaches, and staff always strive to administer the program according to the University’s highest values and standards.
