WINSTON-SALEM Wake Forest's disappointing season took another downward turn today as coach Jeff Bzdelik announced the suspension of senior center Ty Walker for the remainder of the season due to "a violation of departmental policy regarding student-athletes."
“Unfortunately it has become necessary to suspend Ty Walker for the conclusion of the season,” Bzdelik said in a statement released this afternoon. “He will finish up classes this semester and is on target to graduate in May.”
Walker sat out the first nine games of this season due to a violation of the Wake Forest University student code of conduct. He ended up playing in 20 games with 13 starts, averaging 4.2 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.6 blocks per game.
