HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) — Marshall men’s basketball coach Tom Herrion has indefinitely suspended freshman guard Justin Coleman for reasons he did not specify.

The Richmond, Va., native was averaging 6.2 points and 2.9 rebounds through 12 games this season. A spokesman could not say with certainty Saturday why Coleman was suspended.

Coleman started the Belmont game Thursday and played eight minutes but did not play in the second half.
