UConn Point Guard Boatright Suspended for 6 Games

STORRS, Conn. (AP) _ UConn says freshman point guard Ryan
Boatright has been suspended six games for receiving improper
benefits.

The NCAA notified the school of its decision Friday night.

The fourth-ranked Huskies kept Boatright out of their first
three regular-season games while awaiting the NCAA’s decision. He
also will miss the next three games: against Coppin State on Sunday
and the first two games of the Battle 4 Atlantis on Thursday and
next Friday. He will be permitted to travel with the team to the
tournament in the Bahamas and see action for UConn beginning with
the tourney’s final game on Nov. 26.

The infraction reportedly involved the purchase of a plane
ticket while Boatright was playing AAU basketball.

Boatright is expected to see significant playing time this
season backing up starter Shabazz Napier.
