Evansville suspends swingman for N. Iowa game
EVANSVILLE, Ind. -- Evansville has suspended swingman Jordan Jahr for Tuesday night's game against Northern Iowa.
Coach Marty Simmons issued a statement less than 30 minutes before tip-off, saying that Jahr had violated team rules. The statement did not specify what rule or rules were violated, and Simmons said he would not take additional questions. The statement did not say when Jahr would return.
Jahr has started five times in 20 games this season and is averaging 3.7 points and 2.5 rebounds.
The 6-foot-6 native of Texas played in eight games last season before an injury forced him to redshirt.
Evansville (12-9, 5-4 Missouri Valley Conference) has won 10 of its 12 home games this season.
