STORRS, Conn. (AP) -Connecticut reserve center Charles Okwandu will miss the rest of the season after being declared academically ineligible, the school announced Saturday.
The 7-foot Okwandu, a native of Nigeria, averaged less than one point and one rebound in 10 games this season for the second-ranked Huskies.
The junior college transfer will be allowed to practice with the team, but will not be allowed to dress for games or travel.
He said he plans to focus on his school work and rejoin the team next season.
