Tre'Von Willis to return after one more game

11/13/2010

UNLV guard Tre'Von Willis will remain on suspension for one more game before returning for next week's contest against Wisconsin, Rebels coach Lon Kruger announced Saturday.

Willis, the team's leading scorer last season, had been suspended for the team's two exhibition games and Friday's 85-41 season-opening win against UC Riverside after pleading no contest in September to a misdemeanor charge related to a domestic incident.

"Tre'Von has done well during his suspension, but has left a few details undone -- nothing major," Kruger said in a statement. "He will sit out the Southeastern Louisiana game on Wednesday. We have closure in sight and are anxious to move on. He will play against Wisconsin."

Willis, a senior who averaged 17.2 points per game last season, would return in time to face a ranked Wisconsin team and play in the 76 Classic in Anaheim during Thanksgiving weekend.
