MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - Middle Tennessee freshman guard Josh Sain and junior forward Uriah Hethington have been suspended from the men's basketball team for violation of athletic department policy, according to Director of Athletics Chris Massaro.

Each player will be suspended for one game. Sain will not travel with the team to Lafayette, La., for its game at Louisiana-Lafayette Thursday, and Hethington will be suspended for Middle Tennessee's game at Arkansas State Monday.

"We have rules and policies set forth in our athletic department and our student-athletes are made aware of these guidelines," Massaro said. "There are also penalties when these policies are broken and that's the case with (Sain and Hethington)."

Middle Tennessee men's basketball coach Kermit Davis said he fully supported the suspension of each player.

"All of our student-athletes adhere to rules and policies within the Middle Tennessee athletic department," Davis said. "Josh and Uriah violated these rules and will suffer the appropriate punishment. I fully support the athletic department's policy and our players are very familiar with the consequences for violating these policies."
