Ohio State suspends leading scorer Kaleb Wesson
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State has suspended leading scorer Kaleb Wesson indefinitely for violating an athletic department policy the school did not specify.
Ohio State did not say when the 6-foot-9, 270-pound sophomore could return, only that he will play again this season. The action by coach Chris Holtmann was announced Friday.
Wessen is averaging 14.6 points per game for the Buckeyes (18-10, 8-9 Big Ten) and is their top rebounder with 6.7 per game average.
The Buckeyes have three regular-season games remaining, including at No. 14 Purdue on Saturday. Wesson had 18 points in Ohio State’s 90-70 win over Iowa on Tuesday.
