The Northwestern Wildcats have decided to sit junior guard JerShon Cobb for the entire 2012-13 season.

After two promising seasons at Northwestern, JerShon Cobb will have to wait a year before getting started on his junior campaign: the team has decided to suspend the guard for the entire 2012-13 season, Wildcats head coach Bill Carmody announced on Friday.

Cobb was suspended by Northwestern for violation of team policy; however, he will remain enrolled at the university.

Northwestern head men's basketball coach Bill Carmody said in a statement:

"There are standards that each student-athlete is expected to uphold. JerShon has our complete support as he works to fulfill those expectations, and we look forward to having him rejoin the program in a full capacity in the future."

In his first two seasons with the Wildcats, Cobb averaged 7.4 points as a freshman and 7.1 points as a sophomore. He was expected to be a starter for Northwestern in 2012, but will maintain his remaining two years of eligibility when he returns.
