07:12 AM ET 09.10 | Off the court, Tyler Olander has made at least a few very bad decisions over the course of the past year. The UConn men's basketball program has suspended [Olander] indefinitely after his second brush with the law in six months. ... Olander, 21, was arrested in Florida during spring break last March when he refused to leave private property after being asked by police. ... For a time, he was not allowed to work with teammates and was challenged by coach Kevin Ollie to earn back his captaincy, which had been stripped. He had recently been cleared to practice and play, and had been participating in pickup games with teammates on campus. But now UConn coaches want Olander to put basketball aside until he modifies his off-the-court behavior and displays better judgment, a source said.
