Gibbs made money selling school supplies

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.
