Minnesota Gophers men's basketball players Royce White and Devron Bostick have been suspended by head coach Tubby Smith Tuesday, according to the Associated Press.
White, a highly-touted freshman recruit, faces misdemeanor charges of theft and fifth-degree assault after allegedly shopllifting and shoving a security guard at the Mall of America on Oct. 13.
Senior guard Bostick was suspended for a violation of team rules that were not specified and not related to the incident at the MOA. Smith did not set a date for the two to return.
White has Nov. 17 arraignment hearing scheduled, according to the Los Angeles Times.
