Rysheed Jordan's suspension lasted just one game as the St. John's freshman guard was reinstated on Tuesday by Red Storm head coach Steve Lavin.

The Vaux High product and North Philadelphia native was suspended on Friday night for a violation of team rules. He was the Inquirer's Southeastern Pa. Player of the Year last season. In three games, he is averaging 4.3 points and 2.3 assists .

The Red Storm host Longwood on Tuesday night at 7. Jordan will return to Philadelphia on Feb. 22 when the St. John's plays Villanova at the Wells Fargo Center.

"Rysheed has a bright future at St. John's," Lavin said in a statement. "It is important that he takes care of his responsibilities as a student-athlete, on all fronts."
