Ohio State's Kaleb Wesson suspended for violation of team rules
Ohio State will be without its leading scorer and rebounder for at least one game, the school announced on Friday afternoon.
Star forward Kaleb Wesson has been suspended for a violation of team rules, but the length of the suspension is currently unknown. There were no further details behind the suspension, but Ohio State did say in a release that Wesson would return at some point this season.
Wesson is the team’s leading scorer and rebounder, averaging 14.6 points and 6.7 rebounds per contest on the year. The Buckeyes travel to Purdue on Saturday.
Wesson had a huge role in Ohio State’s 90-70 upset victory over No. 22 Iowa on Tuesday. The sophomore posted a double-double in the win, scoring 18 points and grabbing 11 rebounds in 26 minutes of action. He also had four assists.
Ohio State has three games remaining in the regular season, with two of those on the road. The Buckeyes play No. 14 Purdue on Saturday and travel to Evanston to play Northwestern on Wednesday. OSU then finishes off the season next Sunday at home against No. 19 Wisconsin.
