STORRS Conn. (AP) -Connecticut guard Doug Wiggins was reinstated to the team by coach Jim Calhoun on Friday, but starting guard Jerome Dyson remained suspended indefinitely.
The 20-year-old sophomores were suspended Jan. 25, a day after campus police said they found them in a car in a parking lot with a bottle of vodka and a bottle of cognac.
Both players 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 said they also found a small amount of marijuana near the car, but neither player was charged with any drug violation.
Wiggins and Dyson were given drug tests as part of the school's policy. Those results have not been made public, but several published reports said Dyson failed and was automatically suspended for 30 days.
Calhoun said that while Wiggins will be on he bench when the Huskies play Pittsburgh Saturday, he has not decided whether he will play.
