Northwestern suspends guard JerShon Cobb for season
Northwestern University suspended junior guard JerShon Cobb for entire 2012-13 season for a violation of team rules, the school announced Friday. The team rules that were violated were not disclosed.
The 6-foot-5 shooting guard will have two years of eligibility remaining.
“There are standards that each student-athlete is expected to uphold,” Northwestern coach Bill Carmody said in a statement. “JerShon has our complete support as he works to fulfill those expectations and we look forward to having him rejoin the program in a full capacity in the future.”
Cobb started 33 games averaging 7.3 points and 22.5 minutes in his first two seasons. Cobb averaged 7.1 points a game last season. Northwestern has never reached the NCAA tournament.
