The NCAA has determined that Chatkevicius received impermissible benefits from his host family prior to enrolling at the University of South Carolina, and as a result he will be withheld from the first six games.
In addition, walk-on freshman forward Brian Steele has been suspended from the team per athletic department policy.
South Carolina opens its 2012-13 season hosting Milwaukee on Sunday at 3 p.m. as part of the Hoops For Hope Classic. The contest will be televised on FSN.
