Oregon St. men's basketball head coach this morning announced that senior forward Devon Collier and junior forward Eric Moreland have both been suspended indefinitely from competition for violation of unspecific team rules.

The 6'8" Collier and 6'10" Moreland will be allowed to participate with the team in summer workouts and strength & conditioning activities while attending summer school classes, Robinson said, which suggests grades might be involved in the issue.

It's the second suspension in 7 months for Moreland, who considered making himself eligible for the NBA draft last spring, but decided to return to school, after averaged 9.4 points and 10.6 rebounds per game last season.

Collier contributed 12.6 points and 6 rebounds per game, mostly off the bench, but playing starter's minutes for the Beavers.
