STARKVILLE, MISS. (AP) - Mississippi State coach Rick Stansbury says guard Ravern Johnson has been suspended indefinitely.

Johnson, a 6-foot-7 senior, is averaging a team-leading 17.7 points per game. He was suspended for Saturday’s 58-57 win over LSU because of “inappropriate tweets” that were critical of his role with the team and of fans after the Bulldogs’ 75-61 loss to Alabama on Feb. 2. Johnson scored 10 points in the loss against Alabama.

Now Stansbury says Johnson is also facing a suspension because of violating the school’s class attendance policy. Johnson will still be able to practice with the team.

Mississippi State (12-10, 4-4 Southeastern Conference) hosts Arkansas (14-8, 4-5) on Wednesday at Humphrey Coliseum.
