Romar says N'Diaye benching 'coaches decision'

Seven-foot center Aziz N’Diaye’s streak of 20 consecutive starts ended today without direct explanation from Romar or the school.

“Coach’s decision,” Romar said. “Nothing severe, just coach’s decision.”

ESPN and others said that N’Diaye had been late for the team bus Saturday.

Darnell Gant took N’Diaye’s place in the starting lineup, however N'Diaye checked in among the early substitutions.
