Purdue kicked guard Kelsey Barlow off the team and suspended forward D.J. Byrd following an early-morning incident at a bar on Friday.Byrd allegedly assaulted a bouncer at Where Else bar near the Purdue campus and Barlow was kicked out of the bar earlier in the night.Barlow was suspended last season for conduct detrimental to the team just before last year’s NCAA tournament, which led to his final dismissal from the squad.Byrd was arrested for public intoxication by Indiana State Police and spent five hours in jail. He will miss Sunday’s home game against Michigan State.”This is an unfortunate situation, but we will move forward as a program…We expect our student-athletes to live up to a high standard, and when their actions become detrimental to the program, there are consequences,” said coach Matt Painter.Further information regarding the incident will be released by the Tippecanoe County prosecutor’s office on Tuesday.
