Tenngren, who had started in each of the seven games the Blue Raiders had played prior to his suspension, is averaging 8.7 points per game while leading the team with a 7.1 per game rebounding average.
"Iiro has been suspended until further notice," Wiel said. "He violated our team rules and has some personal issues that he needs time to resolve. I won't comment further until a more appropriate time."
Tenngren, a native of Helsinki, Finland, averaged 10 points and 4.3 boards during his career at Middle Tennessee. He missed five games during the 1999-00 season after sitting out during the first semester after transferring from Vanderbilt the year before. He played in all 27 of the team's games last season.
