 STORRS Conn. (AP) -Connecticut guard Doug Wiggins has been allowed to return to practice, but he and starting guard Jerome Dyson remain suspended from the team.
The 20-year-old sophomores were suspended last Friday, the day after campus police say they found them in a car in a parking lot with a bottle of vodka and a bottle of cognac.
Both were cited for possession of alcohol by a minor. Wiggins also was charged with operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license. He is due in court Monday to face that charge.
Campus police say they also found a small amount of marijuana near the car, but neither player was charged with any drug violation.
As part of the school's policy, both were given drug tests. Those results have not been made public.
UConn spokesman Kyle Muncy said Wiggins' return to practice Thursday does not necessarily mean he will play against 18th-ranked Pittsburgh on Saturday.
Dyson was averaging 14.3 points a game. Wiggins was averaging 6.6 points.
