Newark, DE ( - University of Delaware basketball announced the suspension of three players on Wednesday, two from its men's program and one from its women's team.

"This athletics department has very high and very clear expectations of our student-athletes," said Delaware director of athletics Eric Ziady. "When these expectations are not met there will be certain and consistent consequences. Our student-athletes will take ownership of the decisions they make both on and off the court."

Jarvis Threatt, Marvin King-Davis and Shanice Johnson have drawn a one-month penalty for unspecified violations of athletic department policies.

Threatt, a junior guard, ranks second on the Blue Hens in scoring at 17.9 points per game, and places third with 5.8 rebounds per contest while starting 19 games this season.

King-Davis, a sophomore forward, has participated in all 21 games this season, averaging 5.8 points and 4.4 boards while leading the club with 18 blocked shots.

Johnson, a freshman forward out of suburban Philadelphia, has averaged 7.9 points and 6.1 rebounds per game over 17 appearances.

Delaware's men, under eighth-year head coach Monte Ross, leads the Colonial Athletic Association with a 6-0 conference mark and 14-7 overall record. The women, led by 18th-year bench boss Tina Martin, sport an 11-6 mark and is tied for fourth in the CAA with a 3-3 record.
