LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska has suspended junior basketball player Deverell Biggs for three games for a violation of team rules last season.
``We are obviously disappointed in Deverell's actions,'' Nebraska coach Tim Miles said Friday in a statement. ``It's inexcusable. I know he has learned from it, and he will proceed accordingly to improve all areas of his life.''
Biggs, who red-shirted last season, will miss the Huskers' exhibition game and the first two games of the regular season, including the Nov. 8 opener against Florida Gulf Coast.
``I want to apologize to my teammates, coaches and fans for my actions,'' the guard said in the university's release. ``I understand the seriousness and the consequences of my actions, have learned from the situation and worked hard to move forward. I look forward to representing Nebraska in a positive manner on and off the court.''
