UA guard Josiah Turner suspended indefinitely
Head coach Sean Miller announced Wednesday that freshman guard Josiah Turner has been suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules, and won't play in the Pac-12 Tournament.
"I am disappointed in Josiah for his actions. Unfortunately this suspension comes at a time of great excitement and opportunity for our team," Miller said in a statement released Wednesday evening.
"However, the standards of our program will not be compromised under any circumstances. Hopefully, Josiah will learn a valuable lesson."
Turner, a highly-touted guard from Sacramento, played in 29 games (17 starts) this season for the Wildcats, and averaged 6.8 points and 2.4 assists.
Miller also suspended Turner for a single game in December at Florida, which the Wildcats lost 78-72. Fellow freshman Sidiki Johnson was first suspended then dismissed by Miller after seeing playing time in only three games.
