NCAA: Oregon State Suspends Forwards Moreland and Collier

Jul 30 2013, 10:33pm CDT | by

The Oregon State Beavers suspended forwards Eric Moreland and Devon Collier indefinitely for violating team rules.

The Oregon State Beavers men's basketball team announced the indefinite suspensions of forwards Eric Moreland and Devon Collier on Tuesday. 

The announcement was made on behalf of the Beavers by head coach Craig Robinson, who cites the reason for the suspension as a violation of team rules, per the Oregonian. He said the two "will be allowed to participate with the team in summer workouts and strength/conditioning activities while attending summer school classes."

Jeff Eisenburg of Yahoo! Sports writes the suspension could have serious repurcussions in the Beavers' 2013 NCAA season because it will severely affect the team's frontcourt depth. The best option Oregon State has at the moment is Olaf Schaftenaar. Robinson's inconsistent recruitment will also come into play, says Eisenburg. 

Moreland, a junior, contributed 9.4 points and 10.6 rebounds last season. He gave declaring for the 2013 NBA Draft some thought before deciding to return to the Beavers.

Robinson predicted Moreland could be a possible first-round pick in the NBA. 

"At some point, he probably will be a first-round pick." 

Collier is a senior who was the Beavers' second-leading scorer in 2012. He posted averages of 12.6 points and six rebounds per game. 

Oregon State concluded its 2012 NCAA campaign with a 14-18 mark after center Angus Brandt sustained a season-ending knee injury early on. 

University officials said they will have no further comments about the suspensions at this time, per a team spokesman.
