Toledo's Justin Drummond Suspended After DUI

Drummond will miss the game Wednesday against Ohio. - Mark L. Baer-USA TODAY Sports

Toledo's leading scorer will miss the Ohio game on Wednesday.

Some big news out of Toledo tonight:

(TK - Toledo Head Coach Tod Kowalcyzk)

That's a huge loss for the Rockets as Drummond is their leading scorer at 14.6 points per game. The transfer from Loyola (MD) has been lighting it up recently, scoring in double figures in eleven of the last twelve games. Drummond will also be missed on the defense end as he is their third leading rebounder at five per game.

Certainly the other starters will pick up the slack, but the bench will really need to step up. Guys like Jordan Lauf and Jonathan Williams will need to be able to score enough to fill in for Drummond.

This certainly helps Ohio, and more specifically Nick Kellogg who Drummond would have likely had to guard. Although Ohio would certainly like to beat Toledo again at full strength, the Bobcats will definitely try and take advantage of Drummond's misfortune. Against Ohio a few weeks ago, Drummond only scored twelve on 4-11 shooting and fouled out.

Hopefully Drummond will learn from this and it doesn't seem like he's a bad guy. The timing isn't the greatest, but let's hope Drummond won't allow this to happen again.
