Eric Cobb is typically one of the most friendly, outgoing players on the UConn men’s basketball team — at least with the media. That joviality will be missing for a while, however, as the 6-foot-9 junior forward has been suspended indefinitely for conduct detrimental to the team. Cobb is averaging 2.1 points and 3.2 rebounds per game this season. His future status will be determined by Kevin Ollie, according to a statement released by the team. UConn had no further comment on the matter. It’s not the first time that Cobb has run into trouble while enrolled at school. As a freshman at South Carolina two years ago, he and teammate Jamall Gregory were arrested and charged with property crimes related to a string of BB-gun related incidents. Cobb left the team after the season and enrolled at Chipola Junior College, where he had no behavioral incidents and was a popular kid on the team and around campus, Chipola coach Bret Campell said back in March.
