JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - No. 10 Florida has suspended starting point guard Scottie Wilbekin indefinitely for an undisclosed reason.
Coach Billy Donovan made the announcement Thursday aboard the USS Bataan, site of Florida's season opener. The Gators play Georgetown on the ambitious assault ship Friday.
Donovan declined to say what Wilbekin did, saying he got ``info on some things.''
Donovan says ``Scottie is a good kid who made some choices and did some things that I'm not going to have him a part of.''
Donovan's unsure when Wilbekin will return, saying ``how long it lasts, I don't know. But right now, I felt like he didn't need to be here or playing in this game.''
The Gators also will be without swingman Casey Prather, who sustained his second concussion in nine days.
