Sene suspended three games

Virginia sophomore center Assane Sene was suspended for the first three games of the regular season and will sit out Sunday's scrimmage against St. John's. The official reason is "conduct detrimental to the team".

Sene will still practice while he misses the season opener with Longwood at John Paul Jones Arena on Nov. 13, a game at South Florida (Nov. 16) and a home game against Rider (Nov. 19).

“We have expectations for the individuals in our program that Assane has not met,” Coach Tony Bennett said in a statement. “He will not play in our closed scrimmage with St. John’s on Sunday and in the first three games of the regular season, but will practice with the team. My hope is Assane will learn from this situation as we move forward.”

Sene missed Thursday's practice for personal reasons, although Bennett had no further comment and did not provide a timetable for his return.

I`m glad to see that Bennett will not put up with poor attitudes or behavior. Maybe that will be a wake up call to the rest of the team. Unfortunately, they probably will finish last in the ACC no matter what the coach does. He needs a few years to recruit his own players.
