Purvis suspended for opener

UConn guard Rodney Purvis has been suspended for UConn’s opener.

From the school:

“Redshirt sophomore Rodney Purvis will miss the University of Connecticut men’s basketball season opener Friday against Bryant University while serving a one-game suspension.

Purvis participated in more than one league during summer league competition, which is not allowed under NCAA rules. Working with the NCAA, the university determined that the single game in which he played in the second league necessitated the one-game penalty.

Following the game against Bryant, Purvis will be fully eligible.”
