WSSU basketball team gearing up for season

WINSTON-SALEM, North Carolina -- Coach James Wilhelmi of Winston-Salem State said he knew there would be plenty of rebuilding to do for this season but with the loss of another starter the challenge will be greater.

Terrell Leach, a redshirt junior guard, has been suspended from the team after a violation of school policy. Leach, who was the Rams leading scorer last season, is still enrolled at WSSU and could possible rejoin the program second semester.

Wilhelmi would not say what type of violation Leach made nor would he reveal how long the suspension would last. Leach, who missed the first semester last season for academic reasons, is in good academic standing, according to Wilhelmi.

“Right now he’s just focusing on his books,” Wilhelmi said. “He had a violation of school rules and is not eligible. We hope to have him back for second semester.”
