MSU men's basketball team shorthanded

Minnesota State men's basketball team has already run into some problems with the roster as they participate in a California tournament tonight and Saturday. Both games begin at 7:30 p.m. CST and can be heard on KYSM 1230-AM.
Senior A.J. Wilson, a transfer from Murray State, has been dismissed from the team for what coach Matt Margenthaler called an "attitude that was detrimental to the team." Wilson didn't appear to want to play here, and his actions and attitude were Randy-Moss-like.
Senior Andre Gilbert, a transfer from Kansas State, has been suspended through the weekend for violating team rules. Gilbert has been recovering from an ankle injury and must have been late to practice or some other minor violation that caused Margenthaler to leave Gilbert at Mankato.
Mike Bisenius will be sidelined through December after suffering a paritally collapsed lung during a fall in practice. Bisenius has been bitten by the injury bug during his time at Minnesota State and hasn't been able to get on the court. His presence would be helpful as the Mavericks have had to go small with the lineup.
Guard Anthony Brant, who is probably the team's best perimeter threat, will be out for another week with a knee injury.
The team will probably only go nine deep in the two games this weekend, then hope for some of the others to get healthy. It's been a rough first month of the season for the Mavericks.
