Northwestern suspends Cobb for 2012-13 season

Northwestern suspended junior guard JerShon Cobb for the entire 2012-13 season due to a violation of team rules, the Wildcats announced Friday.

The specific rules that were violated were not disclosed and the 6-foot-5 shooting guard will have two years of eligibility remaining.

There are standards that each student-athlete is expected to uphold, Northwestern coach Bill Carmody said in a statement released by the university. JerShon has our complete support as he works to fulfill those expectations and we look forward to having him rejoin the program in a full capacity in the future.

Cobb started 33 games during his first two seasons in Evanston, averaging 7.3 points and 22.5 minutes. He averaged 7.1 points a game in 2011-12.

The loss hurts the Wildcats chances of reaching their first NCAA tournament in school history.

Well, don't forget that in the school's apparel deal with Nike, Michigan's basketball team also gets Jordan uniforms.

The Wolverines unveiled their new hoops unis Friday, and as one might expect, they look pretty cool.
