Wake Forest guard Mitchell Wilbekin has been suspended for as many as six games for violating NCAA rules, the school announced on Saturday.
In a statement, athletic director Ron Wellman said the school will appeal the suspension.
"We believe in Mitchell Wilbekin," Wellman said. "We do not agree with the length of the penalty or the violation, and we will be appealing the suspension with the NCAA."
The Demon Deacons are 5-5 this season.
