GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida announced Monday that starting point guard Scottie Wilbekin has been suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules. It is his second suspension from the team in the past seven months.

In early November, Wilbekin served a three-game suspension for a violation of team rules. That suspension was announced just one day before the team took the court against Georgetown about the USS Bataan in the Navy Marine-Corps Classic.

His suspension was lifted by coach Billy Donovan a little more than a week later.

"He certainly paid the price missing three games, three big games to start his junior year," Donovan said at the time. "I think he missed an opportunity to play on the [USS Bataan], which is a great experience, and playing home opener against Alabama State and then playing the other night against Wisconsin."

Wilbekin averaged 9.1 points and 5.0 asissts as the team's starting point guard en route to a third straight Elite Eight berth in 2012-13.
He is expected to hold onto the starting point guard job going into next season, but his suspension could throw that into question. Florida will add Top 10 player Kasey Hill to the mix as a player who could potentially take minutes away from Wilbekin, particularly if he continues to have issues with suspensions.

Florida did not comment further on Wilbekin's latest suspension.

Dude must be skipping class.
I can't figure this out because he seems like such a good guy.

This might leave an opening for Hill. I bet he'll be starting by the end of the season

Hahah it's a quote from a song. But Kush is very good marijuana.

Well If Wilbekin isn't there, we don't have another point. Eli Carter could play it but he's coming from Rutgers so that whole situation is weird and our other PG from last season transferred.

I thought Kasey Hill is a PG. Can't imagine Billy D wouldn't give a top 10 recruit significant minutes.

No no, he is I just meant if Wilbekin isn't playing we don't have another one other than Hill. Could have worded that better.

Scottie ...killing me man.
Kasey Hill would have gotten major minutes anyway, but I would still prefer to start Wilbekin.

Definitely. I think Hill is better than Wilbekin if they were on the same level. But you can't ever take valuable PT for granted.
