Virginia suspends two for opener

Charlottesville, VA ( – The Virginia Cavaliers have
suspended sophomore guard London Perrantes and junior forward Evan Nolte for
two preseason games and their season opener against James Madison for a
violation of team rules.

Perrantes won the starting point guard job as a true freshman last season,
helping Virginia to a 30-7 record and ACC regular season title. He averaged
5.5 points with a team-high 3.8 assists.

Nolte has been used primarily off the bench in his two seasons and will play a
similar role this year, but could see a bump in playing time with the
departure of big man Akil Mitchell. Nolte put up 2.8 points per game last
year after averaging 5.7 as a freshman.

Both players are eligible to return against Norfolk State on Nov. 16.
