Nebraska basketball coach Tim Miles said Monday afternoon that his consideration of guard Deverell Biggs’ status with the team would continue Monday night and into Tuesday.

The junior out of Omaha Central missed Nebraska’s win over Minnesota on Sunday for “personal reasons.” Miles declined further comment.

Two sources told The World-Herald that Biggs missed a film session earlier Sunday. Biggs was suspended for Nebraska’s Dec. 28 game at Cincinnati for missing a film session.

Also, Biggs was issued a traffic citation on Jan. 5 by UNL campus police for operating a vehicle while having a suspended driver’s license.

UNL police said Biggs was pulled over at 2:10 a.m. for running a stop sign. Biggs license had been suspended for 60 days for driving while intoxicated on Dec. 23, 2012. That suspension has expired and Biggs is eligible to have the license reinstated.

He has a Feb. 5 court date for the traffic misdemeanor.

That DWI case cost Biggs the first two games of the regular season in November as punishment.

Biggs is Nebraska’s third-leading scorer at 9.9 points a game.
