Wake's Tabb, Walker suspended

Wake Forest's quest to improve on a disappointing 2010-11 basketball season ran into an obstacle Monday with the announcement that Melvin Tabb and Ty Walker were suspended indefinitely for unspecified violations of athletic department rules.

Walker, a 7-foot senior center, played in 32 games with nine starts last season. He averaged 3.6 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.5 blocked shots per game.

As a freshman last season, Tabb played in 14 games and averaged 1.6 points and 2.0 rebounds per game.
