Wolf suspended indefinitely

UConn junior Enosch Wolf has been suspended indefinitely following his arrest after an on-campus domestic dispute early Monday morning.

Wolf, a reserve center, was charged with third-degree burglary , first-degree criminal trespass and disorderly conduct. He's scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday.

The incident took place in the LaFlesche building at the Hilltop Apartments.

Wolf was involved in a physical altercation with a female resident, according to the university police report, and he refused to leave the apartment when asked. He grabbed the hair of the victim, pushed her head and knocked off her glasses with his hand, police said.

Wolf, a 22-year-old from Goettingen, Germany, was arrested at 5:55 a.m.

The length of the Wolf's suspension will be determined pending the completion of the legal process and a university review process, according to UConn.

"We are aware of the situation concerning Enosch and we are taking the matter very seriously," coach Kevin Ollie said in a released 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."

UConn returned to campus Sunday after beating Seton Hall, 78-67, at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.

Wolf is averaging 3.4 points and 3.4 rebounds while appearing in all 22 games.

The loss of Wolf hurts the depth of UConn's already thin frontcourt. UConn hosts No. 6 Syracuse on Wednesday at the XL Center in Hartford.

The Daily Campus, UConn's student newspaper, first reported the story.
