According to the Associated Press, Virginia's suspended leading scorer Sylven Landesberg is leaving school to pursue a professional career.

Coach Tony Bennett said Tuesday that Landesberg won't complete the current semester. Earlier this month the sophomore guard was suspended for the rest of the season for failing to meet his academic obligations.

"I have discussed Sylven's future with the Landesberg family and been informed that he will be leaving the University of Virginia to pursue his professional aspirations," Bennett said. "I am thankful for the significant contributions Sylven made to the Virginia basketball program and wish him success in his future endeavors."

Landesberg was the ACC's top rookie last season. He led Virginia this season with averages of 17.3 points and 2.9 assists.
