Sterling Gibbs has been suspended for two games by Kevin Willard for his dirty forearm to the face of Ryan Arcidiacono late in last night's 80-54 loss to Villanova.

Gibbs will sit out Saturday's game at St. John's and the following Saturday's home meeting with Creighton, effectively making the suspension two-plus weeks long. Assuming the Big East doesn't take further action, Gibbs will be available for Seton Hall's final home game of the season against Providence on March 4th.

"Sterling demonstrated poor sportsmanship last night, and he recognizes that what he did was wrong and that he must be held accountable for his actions," Seton Hall head coach Kevin Willard said in a release this afternoon. "This was out of Sterling's character, and I believe this incident does not define the type of person he is or will become. Sterling will learn and grow from this unfortunate event."
