UConn big man Tyler Olander suspended indefinitely

USA TODAY Sports

It's the second suspension of the calendar year for the former Husky captain.

Connecticut has suspended senior Tyler Olander indefinitely, the school announced Monday. It's the second suspension in six months for the Husky big man.

Olander was arrested in Florida during spring break last March when he refused to leave private property despite being asked by police. He was subsequently suspended and stripped of his captaincy.

For a time, Olander was banned from working out with his teammates by UConn head coach Kevin Ollie, who challenged him to earn back his captaincy. He had only recently been cleared to return to practice and become a member of the team for the 2013-14 season.

As a junior in 2012-13, Olander averaged 4.3 points, 3.7 rebounds and 0.9 blocks. His most memorable performance came when he scored 16 points and had seven rebounds in a road victory over then-No. 17 Notre Dame.

Connecticut was banned from postseason play last season due to sub-par APR scores, but is widely-projected to begin the 2013-14 as a top 25 team.
