Syracuse basketball sixth man James Southerland will not play "until further notice" due to an eligibility issue, the university's athletic department announced Saturday.
The school did not include any details on why Southerland is ineligible.
Southerland is second on the Orange in scoring with 13.6 points per game. The 6-foot-8 forward has come off the bench in all 16 games and leads seventh-ranked Syracuse in 3-point field goals with 33.
His best game of the season came vs. Arkansas in November when he scored 35 points.
The suspension was announced shortly before Syracuse took the court against Villanova at the Carrier Dome.
