    UConn has suspended swingman Sidney Wilson indefinitely from games for an unspecified violation of university policy.

    The school says the violation occurred last season, when the 6-foot-7 redshirt freshman sat out after transferring from St. John's and was denied a waiver from the NCAA.

    The school, which emphasized the suspension is from "game activity," declined to elaborate on Wilson's transgression and won't comment until there is a change in his status.

    The move comes after Wilson and senior guard Jalen Adams were held out of a scrimmage on Sunday for a separate violation involving team rules.

    The Huskies, who are coming off a 14-18 season, play an exhibition game Friday against Southern Connecticut and open the season at home against Morehead State on Nov. 8.
