WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) -Purdue guard Lewis Jackson has been suspended for two exhibition games and the season opener for violating team and NCAA rules.
The team suspended him for two games after he pleaded guilty in April to charges of illegal alcohol consumption and possession of drug paraphernalia. Jackson was told to complete community service and spend a year under court supervision.
The NCAA suspended Jackson one game for playing in an unspecified NCAA-sanctioned event without approval from his coach and compliance director. He'll sit out the season opener against Cal State Northridge on Nov. 13.
Jackson started 30 games as a freshman last season and averaged a team-leading 3.3 assists. He'll return for the Nov. 20 game against South Dakota State.
