Charlotte 49ers director of athletics Judy Rose and men's basketball coach Alan Major have announced that the 49ers have suspended junior guard DeMario Mayfield indefinitely for violation of athletic department policy.
"We are disappointed to make this announcement," Rose said. "Our policies are in place for a reason and our student-athletes are expected to abide by them."
Mayfield, who moved into the starting lineup last week against Xavier, is averaging a team-high 11.7 points with 3.6 rebounds this season. He has recorded 14 double-figure scoring games this season and 33 for his career.
A transfer from the University of Georgia, Mayfield is playing in his second season with the 49ers. He earned his degree from UNC Charlotte in December.
"We are disappointed in the decisions that DeMario has made which has led to the suspension," Major said. "We will stay the course and we will rally around each other."The 49ers will not comment further on this matter, at this time.
