ATHENS, Ga. -- Georgia freshman guard Corey Gibbs was suspended for nine games Friday for making more than $500 from selling textbooks and school supplies, a violation of NCAA rules.

Gibbs will be eligible to play Dec. 30, when the Bulldogs face Pittsburgh. A knee injury kept him from practicing full time in the preseason.

"This is a shame because Corey has missed most of the past year of competition and has been working so hard to get back on the court," new Georgia coach Dennis Felton said. "Now, his poor judgment and mistake in behavior are only further delaying his opportunity to compete."

Gibbs was the only recruit signed by former coach Jim Harrick who decided to come to Georgia.
