 SAN DIEGO (AP) - Senior forward Lorrenzo Wade was suspended indefinitely from San Diego State University's basketball team Wednesday, a day after pleading not guilty to a felony charge of stealing a television from a woman's home.
The school said the suspension was for ``violations of team policy.'' Wade has not participated in any team activities the past two weeks and will not practice or participate in team workouts.
``We will continue to monitor the situation and will withhold final judgment until all of the facts are gathered,'' coach Steve Fisher said in a statement.
Neither Fisher nor athletic director Jeff Schemmel returned calls seeking comment.
Wade was a first-team All-Mountain West Conference pick last season, when he was San Diego State's leading scorer with an average of 14.8 points. He was named to the preseason All-MWC team on Tuesday.
glary of an inhabited dwelling in San Diego Superior Court. If convicted, he faces up to six years in prison.
Police say a woman in an apartment in the city's College district woke to the sound of knocking at her door on Sept. 21, then heard people enter the apartment. She waited until the intruders left, then went outside and confronted Wade and his companion.
Wade turned himself in to police on Oct. 7.
Wade's attorney, Richard Muir, insisted his client didn't take the television. He said he knocked on the door to see if she could move her car.
``He should not have walked into the apartment. He had not been invited. He was wrong in doing that,'' Muir said. ``He's a good kid. He's never been in trouble before. We hope to resolve this favorably and get him back into the basketball program, if everyone has their ducks in order.''
A hearing is scheduled for Nov. 18.
