PITTSBURGH (AP) Pittsburgh junior forward Durand Johnson has been suspended for the entire 2014-15 season, with no reason given.

The Panthers made the announcement on Friday before the season opener against Niagara. Johnson averaged 13.0 points in two exhibitions this season after recovering from a torn ACL in his right knee in January.

Pitt coach Jamie Dixon gave no explanation for the suspension, but said in a statement he's encouraging Johnson to ''make the most of this year personally, academically and athletically.''
