Zach Auguste is in the midst of a breakout junior season for the Fighting Irish, but that appears ready to come to a screeching halt.

ESPN.com is reporting that Auguste will be held out of action due to academics and that his status is still undetermined. But according to a report from FOX28, Auguste has been suspended for the remainder of the season, which would be the second straight year in which Mike Brey has lost a key piece in his rotation midway through the season. Jerian Grant saw his 2013-2014 season come to a close at the end of the first semester.

When reached by NBCSports.com, a Notre Dame spokesperson simply said that Brey will “address the situation” after Wednesday’s game.

Auguste is averaging 14.3 points and 6.4 boards on the season, playing a pivotal role as a low-post scorer and, more importantly, as the screener in Notre Dame’s pick-and-roll heavy offense.
