Nebraska Friday suspended junior basketball player Deverell Biggs for three games for a violation of team rules last season.
"We are obviously disappointed in Deverell's actions," Husker coach Tim Miles said in a statement. "It's inexcusable. I know he has learned from it and he will proceed accordingly to improve all areas of his life."
Biggs, who red-shirted last season, will miss the Huskers' exhibition game and the first two games of the regular season, including the November 8th opener against Florida Gulf Coast.
"I want to apologize to my teammates, coaches and fans for my actions," the guard said in the university's release. "I understand the seriousness and the consequences of my actions, have learned from the situation and worked hard to move forward. I look forward to representing Nebraska in a positive manner on and off the court."
