Senior guard Carl Jones, the leading returning scorer for Saint Joseph's, will sit out the first three games due to a violation of the university's community standards.
The suspension was to begin with tonight's exhibition game against Wheeling Jesuit.
Jones also will miss Monday's game against Yale and the Nov. 16 game against Notre Dame at Brooklyn, N.Y.
Ty Johnson, a 6-3 sophomore point guard, is transferring from Villanova.
Last season he averaged 3.3 points in 17.7 minutes a game, making nine starts after breaking his foot in the summer. He also had 65 assists, which was second on the team.
But it was becoming apparent that playing time might be an issue. Promising freshman Ryan Arcidiacono (Neshaminy High) looks like he's going to start at one backcourt spot, and steady Wake Forest transfer Anthony Chennault (Ss. Neumann-Goretti) figures to get minutes off the bench. And looking ahead, next season Rice-transfer Dylan Ennis, who some feel could be the best of the bunch, becomes eligible.
