Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

SEAT­TLE — Washington in­def­i­nitely sus­pended se­nior for­ward Ma­lik Dime on Fri­day af­ter he slapped a stu­dent dur­ing half­time of a Huskies loss to Colorado. Head coach Lorenzo Ro­mar said Dime’s ac­tion dur­ing Thurs­day night’s 81-66 loss in Boul­der, Colorado, wasn’t con­sis­tent with his typ­i­cal be­hav­iour and the coach said he doesn’t ex­pect this type of be­hav­iour again. But Ro­mar said the in­ci­dent was un­ac­cept­able. In a state­ment is­sued through the school, Dime said he made a poor de­ci­sion af­ter get­ting caught up in the emo­tion of the game. Dime slapped the stu­dent af­ter the half­time buzzer. Washington coaches had to re­strain Dime, who was sit­ting out his ninth con­sec­u­tive game with a bro­ken right fin­ger.
