Ward was suspended along with then-teammate Chris Denson on February 25th, 2012, for what was termed at the time a violation of team rules. But two weeks later, Yahoo?s Charles Robinson had a chance to do some digging and had discovered that Ward and Denson, who was reinstated four days later, were actually suspended after Auburn was tipped off to the potential point-shaving.
