Olynyk will miss first three games

Gonzaga junior forward Kelly Olynyk will not be allowed to participate in the Bulldogs' first three regular-season games as a result of a violation of the Student Code of Conduct, the school announced Saturday.

Olynyk, who sat out Kraziness in the Kennel last Saturday and won't play in tonight's exhibition game against Northwest Nazarene, will return for the Old Spice Classic in Orlando. He'll miss games against Southern Utah, West Virginia and South Dakota.

The release didn't provide details of Olynyk's violation.

"Gonzaga's student-athletes are students first, and are required to follow all tenets of the Student Code of Conduct," according to GU"s release. "The same rules and procedures are applied to all students in conduct and disciplinary matters.

"Consistent with university policy regarding matters involving student discipline, no further comments regarding the violation or disciplinary action will be forthcoming."
