Connecticut will be playing a man down for the foreseeable future as the team announced that forward Enosch Wolf has been suspended indefinitely following an incident early Monday morning on campus.
Wolf was arrested at 5:55 a.m. by UConn campus police on charges of third degree burglary, criminal trespassing and first degree disorderly conduct, according to multiple reports. This came after officers responded to the La Flesche Building on a call of a domestic dispute in the complex.
Wolf allegedly would not leave the apartment after being asked multiple times as well.
The program released a statement regarding the incident.
“We are aware of the situation concerning Enosch and we are taking the matter very seriously,” UConn Coach Kevin Ollie said in a press release. “He has been suspended 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 expectation of our student-athletes at UConn, and I expect my players to live up to those standards.”
The report adds that Wolf’s bond was set at $500 and he is due back in court on Wednesday.
Wolf, a 7-1, 260-pound native of Goettingen, Germany, is averaging 3.4 points and 3.4 rebounds in 13.7 minutes for the Huskies. He’s having the most productive season since he arrive in Storrs three years ago, having averaged 1.3 and 3.7 minutes per game the past two seasons.
Who knows exactly what happened in this incident. I supposed we’ll find out soon enough. The event was bad enough for Wolf to get arrested (I wonder what goes through a cops’ mind when they’re arresting a 7-1 dude?) and obviously Ollie is taking swift action. Good for him in this case, at least until all the facts come out.
According to The UConn Blog, Wolf sent a tweet at around 3 a.m. Monday morning saying “Let me in!” to an unidentified person. The tweet has since been taken down by Wolf. It also appears the incident was with Wolf’s girlfriend, according to Ed Daigneault of the American-Republican.
For now, we’ll have to let the facts play out before passing judgement. These are college kids. Domestic violence isn’t excusable by any means, but hearing all the facts will be the determining factor on Wolf’s career at UConn.
