Devon Collier Suspended For One Game, Eric Moreland Out 14

Oregon State Will Be Without The Long Arms Of Devon Collier And Eric Moreland To Start The Season - Greg Wahl-Stephens

Craig Robinson announced the suspension length for starting forward's Devon Collier and Eric Moreland at today's basketball media day. As reported two months ago by Building the Dam, Moreland will sit for half of the season,  while Collier will only be out for the two exhibition games and regular season opener against Coppin State.

Moreland will return for the first home conference game, against Stanford, which also happens to be the first game during winter term. Moreland will miss all the non-conference games, and also the Pac-12 campaign opening road trip.

Robinson still did not divulge publicly the reasons behind the suspensions. Moreland said regarding his half-season punishment, "I'm beyond disappointed in myself." Collier said that he didn't know the length of his suspension until reporters told him, but Robinson said he may have been "pranking" as he had already been aware.

The Beavers will turn to sophomores Olaf Schaftenaar and Daniel Gomis to replace Moreland's minutes. Notable games Eric will miss include road contests at Maryland, DePaul, Colorado, and Utah, and of course the Diamond Head Classic in Honolulu.

Practice for the team begins tomorrow at 11:00 AM, with the exhibition slate starting October 29 against Corban at 7:00 PM. The regular season commences November 10 at 5:00 PM against Coppin State on the Pac-12 Networks.
