LAS VEGAS (AP) — UNLV leading scorer Bryce Dejean-Jones will not play in the Rebels’ regular-season finale at Nevada on Saturday.
Coach Dave Rice said in a statement Thursday that the junior guard was being suspended through the weekend for conduct detrimental to the team.
In addition to sitting out the Nevada game, the 21-year-old would not practice with the team on Thursday or Friday.
Dejean-Jones has started 26 games and is averaging 13.4 points per game.
UNLV (19-11, 10-7 Mountain West) hosts the conference tournament next week.
