Champaign, Ill.-University of Illinois head basketball coach John Groce announced today that sophomore forward Darius Paul (Gurnee, Ill.) has been suspended for the upcoming season.
"After a thorough review of Darius' year, which includes multiple transgressions, I am suspending Darius from all team-related activities for the entire 2014-15 season," Groce said. "As head coach, my concerns are always what is best for the University of Illinois, what is best for the men's basketball program, and what is best for our student-athletes as people.
