COLUMBUS (AP) – Ohio State guard Kam Williams has been suspended indefinitely for violating team rules.

School spokesman Dan Wallenberg tweeted Sunday that coach Chris Holtmann had suspended Williams, a senior from Baltimore. A specific reason wasn’t given.

The fifth-year player is averaging 8 points per game.

The announcement came hours before No. 17 Ohio State was scheduled to tip off against Illinois in Columbus. Andre Wesson will get his first start of the season in Williams’ place.
