WSU basketball player, Klay Thompson cited for marijuana

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Washington State University's Klay Thompson, the leading scorer in the Pac-10, will not play in Saturday's game against UCLA after he was cited for suspicion of marijuana possession following the team's victory over Southern Cal. Coach Ken Bone made that decision Friday morning.

The loss of Thompson, who is averaging more than 21 points per game, is a major blow as WSU seeks to keep alive its hopes for an NCAA berth.

Bone said in a press release that he will continue to gather information and continue to evaluate the situation through the weekend.

Thompson's telephone number is not listed in the Pullman area, where WSU is located, and he was not immediately available for comment.
