CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Miami Hurricanes sophomore point guard Eddie Rios was suspended indefinitely Tuesday for a violation of team rules.

The suspension was announced shortly before the Hurricanes (No. 22 ESPN/USA Today, No. 21 AP) lost to Ohio State.

Rios started the first four games filling in for injured guard Lance Hurdle, who has returned to the starting lineup. Rios is averaging 6.0 points and 14.8 minutes per game.

Last season he averaged 3.4 points in 34 games, including three starts.
