Dominic Woodson is suspended

Memphis coach Josh Pastner has suspended freshman forward Dominic Woodson indefinitely for using inappropriate language during the No. 20 Tigers' game Wednesday against UCF.

Woodson, a reserve, will not make the Tigers' trip to play Connecticut on Saturday.

Pastner, who does not curse, told Woodson to leave the bench during Memphis' 76-70 win Wednesday, explaining afterward that it was because of Woodson's language.

"You're not going to use it on my bench, so I said, 'See ya,'" Pastner said. "No one is bigger than the program. That's the bottom line."

Woodson, who averages 7.5 minutes per game, already was toeing a thin line with Pastner after being ejected for a Flagrant 2 foul during last week's game against Gonzaga.
