Senior guard Briante Weber’s punishment for theft charges brought against him this offseason will be a one-game suspension, community service and restitution.
Senior guard Briante Weber has been suspended indefinitely from the VCU men’s basketball team for what school officials are calling a violation of team rules and the university’s Code of Student Conduct.
The VCU men’s basketball program hired assistant coach David Cason to join Shaka Smart’s coaching staff on April 24. Cason spent the past three seasons in the same position at Vanderbilt University. He will fill the void left by former Rams assistant Mike Rhoades, who became the head coach at Rice University in March.
