SEATTLE (AP) - Freshman forward Charmaine Barlow has been suspended from the University of Washington women's basketball team for the remainder of the season.
Coach Tia Jackson made the announcement yesterday, saying the suspension was "due to a violation of several team rules."
Barlow is a graduate of Seattle's Sealth High School who appeared in eight of the Huskies' 15 games this season, averaging 1.6 points and 1.6 rebounds.
Barlow and junior forward Lydia Young were suspended by Jackson for the Huskies' most recent game, Saturday against Oregon State. Jackson says Young has been reinstated and will accompany the team to Los Angeles for games Thursday at USC and Saturday at UCLA.
The Huskies have a 5-10 record this season, including 1-4 in the Pac-10. They've lost their last four starts.
