Temple guard Khalif Wyatt will not start Wednesday’s game against George Washington for showing up late for study hall. Freshman point guard Will Cummings will start in his place.

It is unknown how long Wyatt will sit on the bench. 

This marks the third time this season the 6-foot-4 guard is being disciplined.

The NCAA suspended him for the Owls’ season-opener at Penn for playing in an unsanctioned summer league. Then Wyatt was held out of the starting lineup at Toledo for showing up late for a film study.

Cummings, who started in place of Wyatt against Toledo, will make his second start of the season.
