Starting guard Ray Gallegos has been suspended for Nebraska's first two games and reserve Jordan Tyrance is leaving the team for personal reasons. Coach Tim Miles said Gallegos will sit out Friday's opener against Florida Gulf Coast and Tuesday's game against Western Illinois for a violation of team rules. Gallegos is a team captain who led the Big Ten in minutes played at 37.5 a game last season and he averaged 12.5 points. Tyrance, a junior walk-on who had limited playing time in 23 games last season, is giving up basketball to finish his degree and raise his daughter. Nebraska also is without junior guard Deverell Biggs, who is suspended three games for drunken driving last December.
