BOZEMAN -- Montana State men’s basketball coach Brad Huse said Tuesday that junior forwards Tre Johnson and Jeff Budinich have been suspended.

Huse said Johnson and Budinich will not participate in team-related activities after violating program rules last weekend.

“I’m disappointed we’re in this situation,” Huse said. “When it’s appropriate we will re-evaluate their status in the program.”

A Bozeman television station reported that Johnson and Budinich were arrested and charged with theft and criminal trespassing after allegedly breaking into a vehicle. They were reportedly held on $1,820 bond at the Gallatin Valley Detention Center, but were released.

Johnson, of Reno, Nev., averaged 9.0 and 6.2 rebounds in 26 games with the Bobcats last season, while Budinich, of Maple Valley, Wash., scored 4.5 points per game while shooting 35 percent on 3-pointers.

MSU finished 12-16 overall and 7-9 in the Big Sky Conference.
