Rodney Purvis suspended for Bryant game

Redshirt sophomore Rodney Purvis will miss the University of Connecticut men's basketball season openerFriday 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. He played in one Greater Hartford Pro-Am game this summer after having played in games in his hometown of Raleigh, N.C. already. 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.

The university will have no further comment on the matter.
