Ohio State men's basketball guards Luther Muhammad and Duane Washington Jr. have been suspended for Tuesday night's game against Nebraska.

The university said head coach Chris Holtmann suspended both players for "a failure to meet program standards and expectations."

This season, Washington is averaging just over 10 points a game for the Buckeyes.

Muhammad is averaging 6.5 points per game.

The Buckeyes and Cornhuskers tip-off at 6:30 p.m.
