"Byron has another whole year here and he needs to understand, he needs to be a leader," Enfield said. "We're doing our part as a coaching staff to help him understand that."

Wesley averages 17.6 points and 6.9 rebounds per game.

"If we're going to be successful next year, Byron will be a huge part of that," Enfield said. "We have confidence in him and support him. He made a mistake and we've moved on."
