BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -Leading scorer Andy Robinson was suspended for three games by the University at Buffalo on Friday for posting an advertisement on the Internet last spring to pay someone to write a course paper.
Buffalo coach Reggie Witherspoon said the suspension will cover the Bulls' first three regular-season games. Robinson, a senior guard who topped Buffalo in scoring last season, has resumed practicing with the team after being suspended in April.
``He has done everything asked of him from the university, division of athletics and men's basketball program to atone for his actions, and has learned and grown from his mistake,'' Witherspoon said in a statement.
The suspension was handed down after Robinson acknowledged he placed an ad on the Facebook.com marketplace Web site, offering to pay $40 or more for someone to write a course paper. News of the advertisement was first published in the school's student newspaper, The Spectrum, which led to Robinson's suspension.
Robinson has since completed the paper on his own and apologized, saying, ``I take full responsibility and realize I must regain the trust of my teammates, fellow student athletes and coaching staff.''
