“Juwan Howard has announced Zavier Simpson has been suspended for violation of team policies and will miss the Nebraska game Tuesday night,” UM’s official twitter account stated.

“While we are disappointed with what has transpired with Zavier, we know there are always lessong to learn and grow from,” head coach Juwan Howard said in a statement. “We take these matters and consequences very seriously. Moving forward, we will continue to handle this mater appropriately withing our program and basketball family.”

It’s currently unknown what violation Simpson committed, but players and Juwan Howard will be made available to the media this afternoon. Our own Anthony Broome will be there with coverage.
