Armstead has been suffering through a subpar senior season in which he was averaging only 10.8 points per game on 38.9% shooting from the field.
Also, point guard Tim Lyles, who is sitting out this season after reconstructive surgery on his knee, was also suspended. It is not known if the two suspensions were related.
The disciplinary actions are just the latest blow to the reeling Mountaineer squad, who have won only once since December 22nd and currently stand at 8-13. WVU faces a must win home game with Seton Hall Saturday at the WVU Coliseum.
