The Oklahoma State Cowboys announced Friday that senior guard Jeffrey Carroll will be withheld from playing pending a review of the program, according to CBS Sports' Reid Forgrave. Oklahoma State was among the schools named in the FBI's years-long investigation into bribery and corruption in college basketball. Former Cowboys assistant coach Lamont Evans, who has since been fired, was recently among those indicted by a federal grand jury on "fraud and other charges that carry potential penalties upon conviction of decades in prison," according to ESPN.com news services (via ABC News). The news of Carroll's impending absence is a major blow to the Cowboys, who were likely to look to the senior as a stabilizing force after losing Jawun Evans—last year's leading scorer—to the NBA.
