Arizona suspends assistant Mark Phelps, player Keanu Pinder for rules violations

Arizona suspends assistant Mark Phelps, player Keanu Pinder for rules violations”

The University of Arizona men's basketball team announced Friday assistant coach Mark Phelps has been suspended five games without pay. The program noted that the head coach's suspension is "unrelated to the ongoing federal investigation" and that Phelps is eligible to return to his post on November 15.

In 12.0 minutes per game, Pinder averaged 2.2 points, 2.9 rebounds and 0.6 blocks and shot 52.8 percent from the field.

Arizona senior Keanu Pinder is being withheld from tonight's game against NAU for a violation of NCAA rules.

Phelps will also be suspended for UA's game against UMBC on Sunday and a total of five days.

Arizona assistant coach Emanuel Richardson was arrested last month as part of a federal investigation alleging bribes and kickbacks from shoe companies to sway recruits.

Pinder, who transferred before the 2016-17 season from Hutchinson Community College in Kansas, didn't have a particularly big role during his first year with the Wildcats.

In a September 26 federal complaint, Richardson was alleged to have taken $20,000 and funneling at least most of it to five-star point guard Jahvon Quinerly, who committed to the Wildcats but has since decommitted.
