The University of Arizona athletics department issued the following release at Lute Olson's weekly news conference today (Monday, March 6):

Senior forward Hassan Adams will not accompany the University of Arizona men's basketball team to Los Angeles for its participation in the Pac-10 Tournament, head coach Lute Olson said Monday.

Adams, 21, will not play in any game of UA's appearance in the tournament, due to a violation of a team rules, Olson said.

He will rejoin the team for a potential NCAA Men's Basketball Championships appearance, Olson said. Arizona plays Stanford in the Pac-10 Tournament on Thursday. NCAA competition begins the following week, should UA qualify.

Statement from Hassan Adams:

"I apologize to the team, to the coaches, the university and the fans for my violation of a team rule. I accept the coach's decision to be suspended from the Pac-10 Tournament. I wish the team well and hope for its success. I'm looking forward to participating in the NCAA Tournament if Arizona is invited."
