UConn news: Wolf''s suspension lifted, a transfer picks UConn

   The UConn men's basketball team continues to make off-season  news.
   UConn announced Tuesday that 7-foot-1 center Enosch Wolf's suspension has ended. He is eligible to rejoin the team as a non-scholarship player. Wolf, who headed home to Germany at the end of the school year, is expected to make a decision about his future at UConn in the next few weeks.
   Wolf's suspension covered the final eight games and came as a result of his arrest on Feb. 11 when he was involved in an on-campus domestic dispute. He was charged with disorderly conduct, criminal trespass in the first degree and burglary in the third degree. He received counseling and later had his charges dropped.
   Before sitting out, he mainly came off the bench, appearing in 22 games and averaging 3.4 points and 3.4 rebounds in 13.7 minutes per game.
   UConn also is adding some depth and experience to its roster for next season. According to several reports, 6-foot-6 guard Lasan Kromah plans to transfer from George Washington to UConn.
   A fifth-year player, Kromah will be eligible to play this upcoming season. He sat out his sophomore season with a foot injury, giving him another year.
   Last season he averaged 10.1 points and 3.7 rebounds in 30 games, starting 11. He spent two seasons playing for Karl Hobbs, who's now an assistant on Kevin Ollie's staff at UConn.
