Flowers started all 36 games last season, averaged 7.2 points and led the team in assists (105) and steals (58). He was selected to the Big Ten all-defensive team.
A news release from the athletic department said Flowers and his family did not wish to comment.
``The important thing is that Michael knows he has the support of his coaches and teammates,'' coach Bo Ryan said in the release. ``We hope that everyone will respect Michael's privacy.''
Brian Lucas, assistant director of athletic communications, said Thursday evening the university would have no comment beyond the announcement.
