Freshman G/F Gohkan Sirin will miss opener

Charlotte 49ers freshman guard/forward Gokhan Sirin, a native of Istanbul, Turkey, will serve a one-game NCAA suspension for participation with a professional club team.

Sirin will miss the 49ers' season-opener vs. UNC Asheville on Friday at Halton Arena. Sirin averaged 17 points and seven rebounds at St. Mary's Ryken High in the Washington (D.C.) Catholic Athletic Conference.

In addition, the 49ers will be without junior wing An'Juan Wilderness, who will miss 2 to 4 weeks with a left calf strain.

Updates of other injuries: Senior point guard DiJuan Harris is day-to-day with a right ankle sprain suffered in practice Friday; red-shirt freshman Shamarr Bowden, who suffered a dislocated left shoulder Oct. 24, is probable for Friday; and junior Charles Dewhurst has been given the green light to play in games without his knee brace.

Is there any further background on this? Did he know what he was doing was in violation, was this prior to coming to Charlotte? Details Jim.
