ATHENS, Ga. (AP) South Carolina coach Frank Martin suspended sophomore forward Demetrius Henry and freshman guard Shamiek Sheppard for the remainder of the regular season on Tuesday.

The suspensions for unspecified conduct detrimental to the team were announced before the Gamecocks' game at Georgia.

Henry, from Miami, has started 19 games and is averaging 6 points and 3.6 rebounds. He missed three games with a concussion.

Sheppard, from Brooklyn, New York, has averaged 1.6 points and 1.3 rebounds in seven games.

Martin said the suspensions will be revisited before the Southeastern Conference tournament.

''Our program is based on helping young people grow as individuals and helping them succeed off the court in life after college, and winning on the court as a member of our team,'' Martin said in a statement released by the team.

''We have expectations and responsibilities that we ask our players to meet on an everyday basis, and unfortunately this has not happened.''

South Carolina also was without guard Marcus Stroman against Georgia. Stroman is missing his third straight game with a throat infection.
