The Big South Conference has belonged to first-place Coastal Carolina (24-2, 15-0) for much of this season. At the bottom of the conference standings you will find Radford (5-20, 2-13) and on Monday night even more disappointing news broke from the university.

Radford head coach Brad Greenberg has been suspended by the NCAA for four games, effective immediately.

As the Highlanders prepare for Presbyterian on Tuesday night, assistant coach Rick Hall has been named acting head coach during the suspension.

The NCAA suspended Greenberg due to violations tied to impermissible team travel and associated extra benefits for an ineligible player. A thorough and in-depth investigation by the NCAA is currently being conducted.

The Highlanders are 1-9 since January 8th and their struggles are clearly apparent. Radford is 324th in the nation in terms of points per game (60.5) and the squad does not have a single player averaging in double-figures offensively.

With four games remaining in the the regular season, Greenberg will return likely be done for the season with the NCAA suspension in force. The Highlanders are currently ranked 10th in a 10-team conference in which the top eight qualify for the Big South Tournament. Presbyterian is not eligible for the tournament until the 2011-2012 season.

Just a season ago, Radford lost in the semi-finals of the Big South Conference Tournament as the No. 2 seed in the league.

Radford and Presbyterian will tip-off at 7:00pm ET on Tuesday night.
