Wolf arrested, suspended indefinitely

UConn center Enosch Wolf has been suspended indefinitely from the basketball team following an on-campus incident Monday morning that resulted in his arrest by university police.

According to the police report first obtained by The Daily Campus, Wolf is being charged with burglary in the third degree, criminal trespass in the first degree and disorderly conduct.

The 7-foot-1 junior was arrested at 5:55 a.m. Monday at the LaFlesche building, an on-campus apartment. The police report stated that Wolf was involved in a physical altercation with a female resident of the building. He refused to leave the apartment when he was asked, the police report said, and grabbed the hair of the victim and pushed her head. Wolf also knocked the glasses off the victim’s face with his hand.

“We are aware of the situation concerning Enosch and we are taking the matter very seriously,” UConn head basketball coach Kevin Ollie said in a statement. “He has been suspended from the team indefinitely, until the legal and university process is finalized.

“I have spoken to the players on the team previously, and will continue to speak with them, about their conduct both on and off the basketball court. We have high expectations of our student-athletes at UConn, and I expect my players to live up to those standards.”

Without Wolf, UConn becomes woefully thin up front. Tyler Olander has had a disappointing junior year, and freshman Phil Nolan has yet to score in Big East play.
