Turner not with Wildcats at Pac-12 tournament


LOS ANGELES (AP) - Arizona point guard Josiah Turner has been suspended indefinitely for violating team rules, the second time this season the freshman has been suspended.

Arizona coach Sean Miller issued a statement on Wednesday saying while it was a bad time for a suspension, the standards of the program will not be compromised under any circumstances.

The Wildcats open the Pac-12 tournament on Thursday after having a bye in the first round.

Turner, who averaged 6.8 points in 29 games, did not accompany the team to the tournament. He was suspended for a game against Florida in December for violating team rules.

Fellow freshman Sidiki Johnson also was suspended by Miller early in the season and later left the team.
