Pegues: Williams reinstated at Louisville after suspension


LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville interim coach Mike Pegues says that leading scorer and rebounder Malik Williams will return to the team this week after his suspension for not upholding program standards. The fifth-year senior forward did not play against Syracuse or North Carolina following last week’s suspension that Pegues announced on his radio show. Pegues said during Monday’s Atlantic Coast Conference coaches virtual teleconference that he and Louisville interim athletic director Josh Heird met with Williams and his mother (via phone) and came to an agreement to allow his return to practice and play on the condition that Williams “can be the guy we expect him to be on the court and in the locker room.”
