LARAMIE — Senior point guard Ny Redding has been suspended indefinitely from Wyoming’s men’s basketball team, head coach Allen Edwards announced Tuesday.
The suspension stems from Redding’s alleged involvement in an altercation in downtown Laramie on Saturday, according to a statement released by the school. Redding was issued a citation for disorderly conduct and inciting a fight, Laramie Police Department Lt. Gwen Smith said.
“As soon as we found out about this situation, we informed our athletics administration,” Edwards said in a statement.
Redding, whose suspension is effective immediately, will be required to appear in Laramie Municipal Court at a later date. The Star-Tribune has filed a public records request for a copy of the citation seeking additional details about the incident.
“In connection with the suspension of Ny Redding, we will follow all university policies and procedures related to this alleged incident,” Wyoming athletic director Tom Burman said in a statement.
Redding, who came to Wyoming as a walk-on in 2016 after transferring from Washington State, started all nine games for the Cowboys this season, averaging nearly 29 minutes per game. He’s averaging 6.3 points and is second on the team with 17 assists. He played in all 32 games for Wyoming last season with nine starts.
Wyoming concludes its three-game homestand today with a 7 p.m. tip against the University of Denver.
