BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - LSU guard Justice Hill will be back at practice after stepping away from the men’s basketball program for “personal reasons,” head coach Matt McMahon said on Thursday, Jan. 26.

“I just want to be clear with Justice Hill; it is not disciplinary situation by any means,” said McMahon after LSU’s loss to Auburn on Jan. 18. “He has stepped away from the program for the time being for personal reasons.”
