West Virginia has suspended senior forward Jonathan Holton indefinitely for a violation of team rules.
Mike Casazza of the Charleston Gazette-Mail reports Holton will sit against Florida on Saturday and miss the next two games, against Iowa State and Baylor. He adds the team knew about the suspension yesterday, although it was not announced until the conclusion of head coach Bob Huggins’ weekly radio show on Thursday.
Holton, who starts at forward, is averaging 9.7 points and 7.5 rebounds in 23.2 minutes per game this season for the No. 9 Mountaineers.
West Virginia (17–3) travels to face Florida (13–7) in Gainesville on Saturday afternoon.
