ISU freshman forward Calvin Godfrey has been suspended for three games for a violation of team rules, coach Fred Hoiberg said at Monday’s news conference.

Godfrey, a 6-foot-8 Robbinsdale, Minn. native had been averaging 4.1 points and 4.7 rebounds per game in bench action for the Cyclones.

“It’s a huge loss, we’ve got some big games coming up and we’ll miss him,” Hoiberg said.

Godfrey will be eligible to return to action Feb. 16, against Texas A&M, and Hoiberg and the ISU athletics department declined any further comment on the situation.

“We were thin before, we’re thinner now,” Hoiberg said. “We’ll see what happens. We’ve got to start getting those football players ready.”

Iowa State Police Department and Ames Police did not have any record of Godfrey, indicating the problem is likely contained within the program.

Fellow freshman Jordan Railey was suspended two games for a violation of team rules following a single-car auto accident on Jan. 1.

Railey’s two game suspension only impacted one Big 12 game, but even with the thinning roster his position could be tentative.

Boone County Sheriff’s Department expects Railey’s test results to come back within the next few days, from the sample Railey gave after an ambulance ride post-accident. Railey reportedly fell asleep at the wheel around 3 a.m. on New Year’s Day, consequently veering off the road, hitting a sign and rolling his car into a private field.

If the results to Railey’s test return positive for drugs or alcohol, Boone County Sheriff’s Department may file an OWI charge.
