Kelvin Sampson Statement regarding DeJon Jarreau

Houston Cougars logo

POSTED: February 2, 2020 -- 2:10 p.m. CT

"In the initial video clip I requested and saw immediately after Saturday's game at Cincinnati, I did not believe there was a bite on Keith Williams. My initial statements in Saturday's postgame press conference were based on the video from the early part of that scrum.

"After further reviews from multiple angles, it can clearly be seen that DeJon Jarreau bit Mamoudou Diarra.

"I reached out to Cincinnati Head Coach John Brannen this morning and apologized on behalf of our Basketball team. Our program is built on discipline, and behavior like that will not be tolerated.

"With that in mind, I have chosen to suspend DeJon for Thursdays game against Tulane. I am confident DeJon will learn from this incident and the consequences of his actions."
