Wake Forest's Wilbekin suspended up to 6 games
School officials made the announcement about two hours before the Demon Deacons' game against Florida on Saturday in Sunrise, Florida.
Athletic director Ron Wellman says the school will appeal because ''we believe in Mitchell Wilbekin'' and do not agree with the length of the penalty or the violation.
Wilbekin is the younger brother of 2014 Southeastern Conference player of the year Scottie Wilbekin of Florida. He's a 43 percent shooter from 3-point range and has averaged 7.6 points in 10 games with seven starts.
