Georgia has suspended men's basketball assistant coach Wade Mason with pay while the athletics department investigates an alleged incident that took place at halftime of the team's loss Wednesday at LSU, a source confirmed to ESPN on Saturday.

Mason, a first-year assistant under coach Tom Crean, will not be on the bench for the Saturday game against Ole Miss at Stegeman Coliseum.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution first reported that an altercation took place at halftime of the 84-65 loss to the Tigers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, involving Mason and director of player personnel Brian Fish.
