Math, Civics & Sciences boys’ basketball player Malik Starkes has been suspended for the rest of the season by District 12 for arguing with an official after Saturday’s loss to Vaux in the Public League Class A final at Southern, his coach said.

Coach Dan Jackson said that Starkes also was suspended from Public League play for next season by District 12 chairman Robert Coleman.

Jackson said school officials met with representatives from District 12 earlier this week.

The junior guard started for MC&S and averaged 8.4 points. Starkes is still enrolled at the school, Jackson said, adding he was not “totally certain” that Starkes is looking for a new school.

MC&S will begin the PIAA Class A state playoffs on March 8.

“I have confidence in my guys that they can step up and use this as a motivation tool,” Jackson said.
