Oregon's Jordan Bell suspended for game vs. Washington State

Monday February 9th, 2015

Oregon announced on Sunday it had suspended freshman forward Jordan Bell for that night's game against Washington State after he was cited for harassment earlier in the week.

According to a statement from the Ducks, Bell was cited after he interfered with a university parking officer who was attempting to place a parking citation on his vehicle.

"I want to apologize for my actions," Bell said in the statement. "I did not react properly to the parking citation and I am disappointed in my conduct. I have already apologized personally to the Parking Officer and want to also make a public apology. Representing the University of Oregon is a privilege and I will do better to live up to those standards."

Oregon won Sunday night's game 92-75 over Washington State.

Bell, a four-star recruit out of high school from Long Beach, Calif., entered Sunday as Oregon's leading rebounder at 7.0 per game and shot-blocker at 3.1 per game. The 6-foot-8 Bell is also averaging 5.7 points in 24.5 minutes per game.

Oregon (17-7) is tied for third in the Pac-12 with a 7-4 conference record. The Ducks next play Wednesday at USC.
