Two Auburn players have been suspended by coach Bruce Pearl following arrests Wednesday.

Bryce Brown and Horace Spencer were both charged with marijuana possession, according to WTVM-TV.

The Tigers play Coastal Carolina on Thursday.

“We’re disappointed,” Pearl said. “They’re embarrassed. These are really good kids that have done a lot of really good things and they made a mistake and they are going to pay a price for that mistake.”

The suspensions are currently indefinite, Pearl said.

Brown is the team’s fourth-leading scorer at 6.9 points per game while Spencer is averaging 5.9 points and 4.8 rebounds per contest.

“They understand they are role models,” Pearl said. “They’ve let their Auburn family down, they’ve let their own families down, their team down and they feel really badly about it.”

Following Coastal Carolina, Auburn plays Mercer, Oklahoma and Connecticut before opening SEC play at home against Georgia on Dec. 29.
