2 Illinois State Basketball Players Suspended
NORMAL, Ill. (AP) -- Illinois State basketball coach Tim Jankovich says two of his players have been suspended indefinitely due to a violation of team rules.

Jankovich suspended Tyler Brown and Darious Clark on Monday.

The 21-year-old players were in McLean County court earlier Monday to face misdemeanor battery charges related to an alleged incident early Sunday in which a man says he was struck in the face while in downtown Bloomington. A judge scheduled a Dec. 23 hearing on the charges.

ISU doesn't play again until Thursday when the Redbirds host Southern Illinois-Edwardsville.

Illinois State lost its season opener Saturday at Fresno State, 55-47. Brown started that game and went scoreless in 15 minutes of action; Clark scored three points off the bench.
