University of Toledo's leading scorer Justin Drummond is suspended for Wednesday's game against Ohio after being charged with driving under the influence on Saturday night.

The university released a statement today, in which coach Tod Kowalczyk says, “Although I remain 100 percent supportive of Justin, our players are held to high standards and when they do not live up to those they face consequences. As a result, Justin will not play in Wednesday’s game vs. Ohio.”

Drummond, a team captain, leads the Rockets with 14.6 points. The junior guard had 12 points, four assists, and two steals in Saturday's 80-73 win at Ball State.
