The Robert Morris men's basketball program has suspended forward Jeremiah Worthem, guard Britton Lee, guard Evan Grey and guard Shaire Tolson-Ford indefinitely, the university announced Friday.

The exact transgressions that prompted the suspensions were not specified beyond that the athletes violated university policy.

"Student-athletes at Robert Morris University are held to the highest standards and, unfortunately, these four individuals have violated university policy," Robert Morris athletic director Craig Coleman said in a statement. "We trust that these young men have learned from their mistake and will bounce back as better individuals as a result of this action."


As opposed to the other three who were suspended, two of whom are walk-ons, Worthem became a key contributor to the Colonials as just a freshman, averaging 8.9 points and 4.1 rebounds in his first season of college basketball. He is the reigning Northeast Conference rookie of the week after scoring a career-high 21 points in a Jan. 18 victory at Mount St. Mary's.
