JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — St. Peter’s basketball coach Shaheen Holloway has been suspended for four games for an NCAA violation while working at Seton Hall.
St. Peter’s athletic department issued a statement Thursday, saying Holloway would sit out an exhibition Thursday night. He’ll also miss the Peacocks’ first three games of the regular season.
The university said Holloway won’t be available for comment because the matter remains under NCAA investigation. The school said the coach has been working with the NCAA enforcement staff in its investigation.
While St. Peter’s didn’t disclose the infraction, Holloway was on the staff of Seton Hall coach Kevin Willard before joining the Peacocks in April 2018.
Willard just finished serving a Seton Hall-imposed two-game suspension related to an NCAA investigation into transfer tampering allegations involving former Syracuse player Taurean Thompson.
