1 Comment

Enosch Wolf, the 7-1 center who has been suspended indefinitely from the Connecticut men’s basketball team, was arraigned Wednesday on charges stemming from a domestic dispute that allegedly took place Monday morning, according to the AP.

Wolf was charged with 3rd-degree burglary, criminal trespass, and disorderly conduct. According to police, he was arrested Monday morning after he refused to leave a woman’s apartment, then pushing her and knocking her glasses off.

Wolf then issued an apology through the press “for what I put the university through, what I put the coaches through, the people of the university, my teammates and my family.”

On the season, he had been averaging 3.4 points and 3.4 rebounds in just under 14 minutes per game. Due to the suspension, he will not be available when the Huskies take the floor Wednesday against No. 6 Syracuse.

Clemson lands 2017 guard

Clemson landed a quality commitment on Tuesday as Class of 2017 guard A.J. Oliver committed to the Tigers. The son of Clemson women’s head coach Audra Smith, Oliver is regarded as a three-star prospect, according to Rivals, although some others view him as a top-100 caliber player.

The 6-foot-4 Oliver attends nearby Daniel High School and should have some time to get acclimated with the players and coaches before he sets foot on campus. A versatile guard who plays hard, Oliver showed that he can make plays with the ball in his hands this summer with the Upward Stars.

Oliver is Clemson’s first commitment in the Class of 2017 and it’s a strong start for head coach Brad Brownell.

Arizona’s Tarczewski out 4-to-6 weeks

Arizona will be without senior center Kaleb Tarczewski for 4-to-6 weeks, the school announced on Tuesday. The 7-foot Tarczewski suffered a stress reaction and strained muscle to his left foot and he’ll have some time to heal before the main portion of the Pac-12 conference schedule.

The experienced Tarczewski was averaging 8.6 points and 7.2 rebounds per game before going down with injury. Without the senior in the lineup, Arizona fell to Providence in the Wooden Legacy last week. Without Tarczewski in the lineup, the Wildcats could turn to center Dusan Ristic while forward Ryan Anderson has had some solid outings this season.

Missing Tarczewski for the rest of non-conference play will hurt but he’ll get to rest and recover for the stretch run while the Wildcats can mix in some new frontcourt pieces.
