Iowa State suspends Abdel Nader in wake of reported DUI arrest

By Matt Norlander | College Basketball Writer

Iowa State has indefinitely suspended transfer forward Abdel Nader, according to multiple reports.

Nader was pulled over around 11:40 p.m. Saturday night, according to Iowa State Police. He was arrested on a suspicion of driving while intoxicated. Nader joined ISU nearly a year ago after transferring from Northern Illinois.

Nader did not play this past season because he was a redshirt transfer. While at NIU, Nader averaged 13.1 points and 5.6 rebounds in his sophomore season a year after making the MAC's All-Freshman team.

The suspension is in compliance with Iowa State student-athlete code of conduct.

ISU told the Des-Moines Register that Cyclones coach Fred Hoiberg "is aware of the situation."
