Four Kent State players, including starting guard Malique Jacobs, have been disciplined by the Mid-American Conference for a social media post in advance of Saturday's championship game against rival Akron.

The league said forward DJ Johnson has been suspended indefinitely, while Jacobs and reserves Cli'Ron Hornbeak and Julius Rollins will have to sit out the first half of the title game for the Golden Flashes.

Jacobs scored a team-high 19 points and had 10 rebounds in Kent State's win over Ohio in the semifinals Friday night. After the game, the four players posted a video on Snapchat in which they used profane language toward Akron. The video was shared on Twitter.
