Curtis Kelly suspended four more games by Kansas State

Kansas State forward Curtis Kelly's suspension is no longer indefinite. Kelly will miss the Wildcats' next four games as punishment for receiving so-called "impermissible benefits" aka discounted clothes from a Manhattan Dillard's. 

Kelly and guard Jacob Pullen made the less-than-brilliant decision to accept more clothes than they paid for from the store. Apparently this wasn't stealing because the clerk let them and the store manager didn't file a police report



The Star reported Tuesday that Kelly will be required to make a donation in the amount of the clothes to a charity and will have to get educated by compliance officers.

NCAA guidelines dictate that any player who receives impermissible benefits between $100 and $300 must miss 10 percent of his team's season, in K-State's case three games. Any player who receives between $300 and $500 must miss 20 percent of the season, or six games.

K-State has not released official numbers, but the discounts Pullen received would land in the first category and Kelly in the second.

Pullen has only one game left to sit out (Friday night's game with North Florida). Kelly will miss the North Florida game as well as Savannah State, Colorado and a road trip to Oklahoma State. 

Kelly and Pullen were suspended an hour before the Cats game with UNLV, which Frank Martin's shorthanded squad lost 63-59.

For what was supposed to be a great season -- one that started with the Wildcats ranked No. 3 in the nation -- Kansas State sure has been disappointing.
