Wiggins is practicing, Dyson is not's Jeff Goodman is reporting that Jerome Dyson has failed his drug test, while Doug Wiggins has passed his.

Wiggins is practicing with the team this afternoon at Gampel Pavilion; Dyson is not.

Both players remain suspended indefinitely from game competition, UConn coach Jim Calhoun announced on Thursday. That doesn't necessarily mean one or both of the players (apparently just Wiggins) won't be able to play against Pittsburgh on Saturday.

Both Wiggins and Dyson were subjected to drug tests by the university after they were caught with two bottles of alcohol in a parked car by UConn police late Thursday night. The Hartford Courant, citing sources, reported that Wiggins had already flunked two drug tests; a third failed test would result in being suspended from the team for the rest of the season.

There had been no reports of Dyson failing a prior test until today.

More to come ...
