BATON ROUGE – LSU women’s basketball coach Nikki Caldwell announced Wednesday that Danielle Ballard has been suspended indefinitely from game competition.

“As a coach, there are times where we encounter disciplinary situations concerning our student-athletes,” Caldwell said. “Danielle has unfortunately been suspended for a violation of team rules.”

During her suspension, Ballard will be permitted to practice with the team. Due to the student privacy policy, LSU will have no further comment on this matter at this time.
