Abdel Nader suspended for violation of team rules

Comments (...) | Add Comments

Northern Illinois sophomore wing Abdel Nader has been suspended for the beginning of the season, Huskies head coach Mark Montgomery announced Friday.

The indefinite suspension is due to a violation of team rules.

“We have high standards for our student-athletes and unfortunately at the end of last season Abdel did not live up to those standards,” Montgomery said through a team spokesperson. “As a result of his action he has been suspended from competition indefinitely.”

Nader, a native of Skokie, averaged 10.4 points and 4.2 rebounds per game in 2011-12. He was named to the All-Mid-American Conference Freshman Team last season, and was a preseason All-MAC selection this year.

NIU opens up its season at Nebraska Omaha tonight at 7 p.m.
