A few hours after a judge officially charged Washington senior guard Venoy Overton with providing alcohol to a minor Tuesday afternoon, head coach Lorenzo Romar decided to suspend his starter for the entirety of the Pac-10 tournament.

Jerry Brewer of the Seattle Times tweeted the news of Romar's decision. Brewer is also reporting Romar will reinstate Overton, should they make the NCAA tournament.

Overton is facing a maximum of one year in jail if he's found guilty of furnishing alcohol to a minor.
His suspension comes two months after a 16-year-old girl alleged she was sexually assaulted by a then-unnamed Huskies player. Washington decided to keep the guilty party in question anonymous as the case played out.

Overton is averaging 6 points, 3.4 assists and 2.6 rebounds per game.

The Pac-10 tournament begins Wednesday in Los Angeles. Washington's first game is Thursday against Washington State.

Why did he even make the trip to LA for the Pac-10 Tournament? Why is he practicing with the team? If you suspend him, then suspend him. I'm a big fan of Romar and I can't imagine what he's had to endure this season, but he whiffed on this one.

This player doesn't have a thing to worry about.  All he has to do is call Mark Emmert, President of the NCAA, and he will take care of every thing for him.  It will be like nothing ever happened.   Then when anyone ask about it Emmert will just lie or come up with some BS story just like he has for Cam Newton, Ohio State Players.

And all the little Husky-blowing talk show hosts whined and cried when the Coug fans yelled "No means No!" at him in Pullman..... saying they were unfairly accusing someone and "outing" him. He's a wanna-be thug. Plain and simple. If not jail now, it will happen sooner or later. I just wish someone would pop the little punk in his constantly crying piehole.

I was shocked to learn that 16 DOES NOT get you 20 in Washington. I remember learning otherwise in law school... strange.
