Cottrill Suspended

West Virginia freshman guard Noah Cottrill has been suspended from the Mountaineer basketball team.

In a terse, two-sentence release from West Virginia's sports information office, Cottrill's suspension was made public today.

West Virginia University men's basketball coach Bob Huggins announced today that freshman guard Noah Cottrill has been suspended indefinitely from the Mountaineer men's basketball team.

"Noah has been suspended indefinitely from our team for conduct unbecoming of a Mountaineer," said Huggins.

Rumors, but no concrete evidence, of problems for Cottrill have surfaced in recent weeks. Earlier this week, Huggins told the Charleston Gazette that Cottrill "had some things to work on". Cottrill participated in an autograph session prior to West Virginia's opening of basketball practice on Oct. 15, but did not play in the scrimmage.

Cottrill's suspension makes him the fourth player to be involved in a legal or disciplinary incident since the end of last year. Joe Mazzulla and Dalton Pepper were cited for disorderly conduct in August, and Casey Mitchell was suspended earlier this month. Mitchell was reinstated one week ago, and all three are participating in practice.
