Radford has suspended sophomore point guard Carlik Jones, junior guard Travis Fields and junior center Devonnte Holland for Tuesday's game for failing to meet team standards, RU coach Mike Jones said in a news release. They have not been suspended beyond the season opener, the coach said in a text message. Fields had already been held out of last week's exhibition game against Washington and Lee for not meeting team standards.

Fields and Carlik Jones were each charged on April 4 by Radford City Police with one misdemeanor count of underage possession or purchase of alcohol, according to Radford General District Court records. The date of the offense was April 1. The case was continued on May 24. The two performed community service, according to their attorney, Beverly Davis, and the charges were dismissed on Aug. 23. Holland was not involved with the case, said Davis.

Fields was charged on Oct. 11 by Radford City Police with one misdemeanor count of having an open container of alcohol, according to court records. The date of the offense was Oct. 6. The case was continued on Oct. 25 and will be reviewed on April 25.

Davis & Elkins is an NCAA Division II school that went 7-19 last season. The Senators have been picked 11th out of 13 teams in the Great Midwest Athletic Conference preseason coaches poll. ... This game counts as part of Radford's regular-season record, but it is only an exhibition game for Davis & Elkins and will not count on that team's record.
