Ohio State suspends Muhammad, Washington for Nebraska game

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State has suspended sophomore guards Luther Muhammad and Duane Washington Jr. for its game against Nebraska.

The team announced the suspensions shortly before Tuesday night's game. The reason was cited as “failure to meet program standards and expectations.”

Washington has started 11 games and is the team's second-leading scorer, averaging 10.7 points per game. Muhammad has started every game but one and is averaging 6.5 points.

The team did not release any more details or say if the players will miss any more games.

Ohio State (11-5, 1-4 Big Ten) has lost four in a row after starting the season 11-1. The Buckeyes were ranked as high as No. 2 in the AP Top 25 but have dropped to No. 21.
