FAIRFAX, Va. -- Two members of George Mason's men's basketball team and four members of the women's team were suspended for one to four games for violating team and athletic department rules.

"We have had separate incidents that have resulted in conduct that is unacceptable," athletic director Tom O'Connor said Thursday. "... It is our hope that these individuals understand the role they play and their responsibility to George Mason."

The school had no further comment, assistant sports information director Carlton White said.

Sophomore Trent Wurtz was suspended for the first three games of the season, and senior Richard Tynes will sit out the Patriots' Nov. 13 exhibition game against the One-on-One All-Stars.

Two members of the women's team, senior Lesley Harvey and junior Lauren Hediger, were suspended for the first four games. Freshman A.J. Farrar and sophomore Jen Daniels will miss the Nov. 17 exhibition game against the NWBL Elite Team.
