LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska basketball coach Barry Collier suspended center Kimani Ffriend and guard John Robinson for three games for violating team rules.

Collier would not say Tuesday what rules were broken.

``Any discussion of specifics regarding team issues ends at the locker room door,'' said Collier, who was hired by Nebraska in April.

Ffriend's suspension will include two exhibition games and the Nov. 18 season opener against Oral Roberts.

The 6-foot-11 senior from Kingston, Jamaica, averaged 12.2 points and a team-high 8.9 rebounds last season, his first at Nebraska after two years of junior college.

Robinson, a transfer from New Mexico, will not be eligible until Dec. 15. He will sit out the first three games after that.
