PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- Providence freshman basketball players Brandon Austin and Rodney Bullock have been suspended from game action indefinitely for what the school described as ''not upholding their responsibilities as student-athletes.''

School spokesman Arthur Parks said Wednesday that no further details would be released.

Coach Ed Cooley said in a statement that student-athletes are held to high standards and that ''we are disappointed in some of the choices'' Austin and Bullock have made.

The Friars open their season Friday night at home against Boston College.
