Hokies Suspend Starting Forward
BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) _ Virginia Tech forward Dennis Mims was suspended from the team indefinitely Tuesday by coach Ricky Stokes for violating a team rule on class attendance.
The 6-foot-9, 225-pound junior was one of only two returning starters for a young Hokies team that is off to a 2-4 start. He missed the last two games because of an ankle injury.
Mims scored in double figures in 25 games last season. He shot 52.6 percent from the floor and blocked 58 shots, both tops in the Atlantic 10.
