Arizona guard Garland Judkins will be suspended indefinitely, but fellow freshman teammate D.J. Shumpert could return to wearing a uniform as soon as Thursday.

UA interim coach Russ Pennell said if Shumpert “does what he needs to do, he’ll make the trip” to the Washington schools.

UA faces Washington State at 7 p.m. Thursday in Pullman, Wash., and meets Washington at 1 p.m. Saturday in Seattle.

Judkins, a 6-foot-3 reserve guard, won’t be allowed to practice, Pennell said.

It’s not clear if he’ll return the rest of the season. Two weeks remain in the regular season. This is his third suspension this season.

“It’s just not living up to team standards,” said Pennell, looking disappointed in having to talk about it.

Judkins and Shumpert did not make UA’s trip to Arizona State on Sunday in Tempe, where ASU won 70-68.

Despite the situation, Pennell and Judkins exchanged handshakes and hellos right after Pennell had his weekly session with the media at McKale Center on Monday.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
