Georgia Tech's Bolden given 3-game suspension

Associated Press

ATLANTA -- Georgia Tech guard Chris Bolden has been suspended for the first three games of the season for an undisclosed violation of team rules.

Coach Brian Gregory announced Friday that Bolden, a sophomore, will miss three games, including the Nov. 8 opener against Presbyterian. Also included in the suspension is a game at Georgia on Nov. 15 and an exhibition game before the season.

Bolden averaged 7.3 points in 31 games as a freshman last season. He is one of four returning starters for the Yellow Jackets.

Gregory says "there has to be accountability" when "certain standards" are not met by players.
