Arkansas reinstates Reggie Chaney after 3-game suspension

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Sophomore forward Reggie Chaney made his first appearance of the season for Arkansas on Tuesday against Texas Southern after missing the first three games because of a suspension for violating team rules.

Coach Eric Musselman said earlier Tuesday in a release that Chaney "fulfilled the obligations that led to him being suspended for the first three games."

Chaney played 19 minutes and finished with 6 points, 2 rebounds, 4 steals and 1 block in the Razorbacks' 82-51 win, their first of the season.

"I thought Reggie was really good," Musselman said. "We were worried about his wind because we don't do a whole lot of full-court stuff in practice between games, we wanted to get his rust off. He protected the paint and rolled hard to rim. I think he'll get more and more comfortable with our system as we go along."

The 6-foot-8 Chaney averaged 5.4 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.4 blocks last season.

Chaney had been practicing with the team, which got off to a 3-0 start without him.
