UMass' Lalanne suspended after arrest
By Jack McCluskey
UMass starting center Cady Lalanne has been suspended from the team by coach Derek Kellogg after being arrested on campus on Saturday night, the team announced in a statement Monday.
Lalanne will not travel to Boston with the Minutemen on Monday and will not play in the game against Northeastern on Tuesday night.
Lalanne was arrested at the UMass student union and charged with disorderly conduct, assault and battery on a police officer and resisting a police officer making a lawful arrest, according to the university's arrest log.
The 6-foot-9, 250-pound sophomore was averaging 4.8 points and 5.2 rebounds in 20.5 minutes a game in 2012-13. The Orlando, Fla., native had started all six of the Minutemen's games to date, leading the team in blocks (1.8 per game) and ranking fifth in rebounding.
Lalanne was limited to 14 games last season with a foot injury and did not play after Dec. 30.
