University of Minnesota men's basketball coach Tubby Smith announced last night that he has suspended guard Devoe Joseph indefinitely. [...] Smith would not go into specifics, other than to say Joseph has had a couple of off-court issues. Smith says he expects Joseph to be back with the team at some point this season, but he must take care of a few things first. Smith would not detail a specific length of the suspension, but did say Joseph would not be traveling with the team to a tournament in Puerto Rico next week.
"Devoe knows he's let the team down," Smith said, according to the Associated Press. "He feels like he's let himself down, he's let me down. But it doesn't take long to recover. Once you realize that when you look at the mirror, you say, 'You know what, I better go hug him because I'm looking for a hug myself.' I've made mistakes after mistakes [too]."
