Basketball: OSU suspends Eric Moreland

Oregon State sophomore forward Eric Moreland, the Pac-12’s second-leading rebounder, will be sidelined again Saturday when the Beavers face No. 4 Arizona, suspended for a second straight game for violation of team rules.

Moreland sat out the Beavers’ 72-62 loss to Arizona State on Thursday. He was suspended immediately before the game by coach Craig Robinson, who gave no details on the reason for the punishment.

Moreland averages 10.8 points and 11.1 rebounds.

Also suspended for both games this weekend, for unrelated reasons, was freshman reserve Victor Robbins.

Robinson said he expects both players to eventually rejoin the team.
