The Robert Morris men's basketball team apparently will remain short-handed for the foreseeable future.

The university on Friday announced it suspended indefinitely freshman forward Jeremiah Worthem, freshman guard Britton Lee, sophomore guard Evan Grey and sophomore guard Shaire Tolson-Ford.

The Colonials defeated Sacred Heart, 91-65, on Thursday night without the four players.

“Student-athletes at Robert Morris University are held to the highest standards, and, unfortunately, these four individuals have violated university policy,” athletic director Craig Coleman said in a prepared 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.”

The university did not comment further.

Worthem on Monday was named NEC Rookie of the Week, the second time this season he received such recognition. His 8.9 points per game ranks third on the team. The 6-foot-6, 215-pound Worthem was ranked as a three-star recruit by Rivals.com and Scout.com while at Math, Civics & Sciences Charter School in Philadelphia.

Lee is a reserve who has seen action in three of the team's 20 games. Grey and Tolson-Ford are walk-ons who have not played this season.
