SportsPulse: USA TODAY Sports' Lindsay Schnell and Scott Gleeson discuss why predicting this year's tournament favorites is harder than ever.


North Carolina suspended guard Jalek Felton, the school announced Tuesday, without revealing any detail behind suspension. 

UNC said in a release that Felton "has been suspended from the University and therefore is not currently eligible to participate in any University activities."

The school also said it will not comment further due to federal privacy laws.

Felton, the nephew of former Tar Heels' standout and NBA guard Raymond Felton, had seen time in 22 games this season as a backup freshman point guard, averaging 2.9 points and 1.6 assists a game. 

North Carolina (16-6) plays at Clemson on Tuesday night.
