“This suspension, which takes effect immediately, prohibits all team activity, including practicing and representing the university in competitions," said Lynn Bushnell, vice president for public affairs in a statement.  "With the well-being of our students being our top priority, the university has zero tolerance for any behavior that endangers any member of the university community.”

The university said no further details or information would be immediately released.

The men's lacrosse regular season begins in February. 

Quinnipiac went 9-6 last season. In 2016, the team won an NCAA Tournament game for the first time in program history.
