Arkansas starters Gary Ervin and Sonny Weems were withheld from the starting lineup against Mississippi State on Wednesday night, but played in the game. Reserve guard Stefan Welsh also played.
The three Razorbacks missed curfew last Friday night after being out with LSU forward Glen Davis the night before the Arkansas-LSU game, which LSU won 71-67 on Saturday.
Heath, who didn't know about the curfew violations until after Saturday's game, was asked Thursday when he decided to impose the suspensions.
"The minute I found out -- right after the (Saturday) game," Heath said.
Heath declined to say how late the players were out Friday night, explaining, "I don't want to make it more than it is."
Ervin said, "It was just a few minutes. But if you make a mistake like that, you've got to pay the consequences."
Welsh, a 6-foot-2 freshman guard, said, "It was just a situation in house, and when it's in house it stays in house. We did our punishment, learned from our mistakes, and it won't happen again."
Heath said he held a team meeting after Arkansas' 84-60 loss at Mississippi State.
"I wanted to hear what the players had to say -- what they felt was happening, where their hearts were," Heath said. "I felt everyone in the room was 100 percent that they were going to fight, stay together and get better, and it was going to start in practice."
Arkansas, 15-10 and 4-7 in the Southeastern Conference, plays host to Ole Miss at 4:05 p.m. Saturday.
Weems said, "Everyone is down right now, but we're still in (the SEC West race). We've got five games left and if we win out, we've got a good chance. Coach Heath asked someone to step up, and it's my time to do it."
