Illinois Suspends Sophomore Guard Head
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) -- Illinois has suspended sophomore guard Crandall Head for four games over an unspecified violation of team rules.

Head sat out Tuesday's exhibition win over Wayne State and will miss Monday's exhibition against Quincy. He'll also miss the first two regular season games against Loyola on Nov. 11 and Nov. 14 against Southern Illinois-Edwardsville.

Illinois Coach Bruce Weber said the suspension wasn't over one particular incident.

Head played in 17 games as a freshman, mostly off the bench. The Matteson native is the younger brother of former Illini star Luther Head.
