Memphis freshman James Wiseman has been suspended 12 games by the NCAA and will be eligible to play on Jan. 12 against South Florida. He sat for Saturday's game, so he'll need to miss another 11 before he can return.
Memphis announced that it will appeal the NCAA's decision based on "case precedent, the circumstances of this case and other mitigating factors."
"We expect a more fair and equitable resolution, and we will exhaust all avenues on James' behalf. James will not compete in this evening's contest," the school said in a statement.
