Reggie Redding on the Bench

Villanova University announced that senior guard/forward Reggie Redding has lost his status as a "student in good standing" for the Fall 2009. Redding will remain enrolled in the University and will continue to attend classes. He will be allowed to practice with the team, but will be benched for all games played during the Fall 2009 semester. Coach Wright added his own assessment in the press release, indicating his support for the process and punishment, even as he affirmed his opinion of Reggie as "a quality person".

The fall semester ends on December 18. While Redding will not participate in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off in November, given the uncertainty in the schedule, I am not sure exactly how many games for which Reggie will be benched. Right now the number is 7, but a few more dates/times/opponents need to be settled.

The civil authorities still have punishment to assess, so there remains one more set of punishments to assess.
