At Least UConn Only Pops Bottles

The indefinite suspension for Connecticut sophomore guards Jerome Dyson and Doug Wiggins that was announced Friday comes as a result of an incident Thursday night in which they were both cited for alcohol violations. Both were cited for possession of alcohol by a minor, while Wiggins was also given a summons for operating a car with a suspended license. Police discovered bottles of Vodka and Cognac in the car (what kind of college kids drink cognac?). Neither were charged with crimes, but they will have to appear in court. The two players were suspended for the Huskies' win at Indiana on Saturday. "I don't know if they're going to be part of the team or not part of the team," head coach Jim Calhoun told the Connecticut Post. "I'm still gathering information."

Although Connecticut proved it could win without Dyson, the team's leading scorer, and Wiggins, the team's best bench player, when it beat Indiana in Bloomington on Saturday, it remains to be seen whether the Huskies can do it on a regular basis. Without the two, seldom-used Donnell Beverly is the only guard off the bench. A.J. Price and Craig Austrie might have to get accustomed to playing 33-36 minutes every night.

  1. That is what I said on my blog about finding cognac in the car. What college kid drinks that?

    Also, don't forget about the pot they found.
