Krystkowiak lifts Josh Watkins' suspension after one game

The Utes announced Thursday that Josh "Jiggy" Watkins rejoined the team after serving a one game suspension for "conduct detrimental to the team."

The Tribune reported Monday that Watkins' late arrival to Monday's practice was the final straw after a string of issues, including falling asleep in class.

Krystkowiak labled the suspension of his leading scorer "indefinite" but it lasted three days, including Wednesday night's 81-50 loss to Cal State-Fullerton at the Huntsman Center.

Watkins leads the Utes with 17.7 points per game, but nearly as many turnovers (4.6) as turnovers (4.9).

The Utes are 1-7 and host rival BYU Saturday at the Huntsman Center.
