Basketball: Utah boots leading scorer Watkins

Josh “Jiggy” Watkins’ game at Cal on Saturday will be his last for Utah.

Utes coach Larry Krystkowiak booted the senior guard from the program for undisclosed violation of team rules. Watkins had previously been suspended for three days and one game, and Krystkowiak implemented a “zero tolerance” for players who are late for practice or miss meetings.

Watkins was averaging 15.6 points and 4.8 assists for the 4-13 Utes.
