ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- University of Michigan men's basketball head coach John Beilein has suspended freshman Zack Novak (Chesterton, Ind./Chesterton HS) today (Friday, Jan. 30), for one game following his flagrant foul and subsequent ejection from U-M's game at Ohio State on Wednesday, Jan. 28.
"We are taking swift and appropriate action with Zack for the unacceptable incident that occurred at Ohio State," said Beilein. "After speaking with Zack, he understands the severity of his actions. He expressed regret and embarrassment for his behavior. I hope Zack will learn a valuable lesson from this imposed discipline."
Novak's suspension will be effective immediately and he will not be available for the Wolverines upcoming road game at 16/17 Purdue on Saturday (Jan. 31).
