Oregon State suspends forwards Collier, Moreland
Two impact players for the Beavers have been reprimanded by coach Craig Robinson. How long will they be punished? That remains to be seen.
Oregon State forwards Devon Collier and Eric Moreland -- who last year combined to average 23 points -- have been suspended indefinitely by Oregon State.
Coach Craig Robinson and the university announced the punishment Tuesday afternoon, citing a violation of team rules.
"They will be allowed to participate with the team in summer workouts and strength/conditioning activities while attending summer school classes," the statement said, adding, "Oregon State officials will have no further comment at this time."
Collier is a senior; Moreland a junior. Collier averaged 12.6 points and six rebounds in 25.5 minutes last season. Moreland grabbed more than 10 rebounds per game, by far a team-best, and scored 9.4 points per in the process.
Oregon State finished 14-18 last year after dealing with an early season-ending injury to big man Angus Brandt.
