UConn suspends starting center Olander

The SportsXchange

Connecticut suspended starting center Tyler Olander indefinitely, the school announced on Monday.

According to the Hartford Courant, Olander was charged late Saturday night with operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol/drugs, operating (or towing) an unregistered motor vehicle and operating a motor vehicle in violation of classification.

The newspaper also reported Olander failed field sobriety tests, and that this is the second time he has been arrested this year. He was arrested for failing to leave private property in Panama City, Fla., in March during spring break.

Olander, a 6-foot-11 senior who was a captain of the team, started 26 games for the Huskies last year and averaged 4.3 points and 3.7 rebounds per game.
