Oregon freshman Jordan Bell suspended for Ducks' game against Washington … – OregonLive.com
EUGENE — Oregon freshman Jordan Bell is suspended for this afternoon’s Ducks’ game against Washington State.
Bell, a freshman, was cited for harassment after he interfered with a Oregon parking officer while the officer attempted to place a parking citation on his car earlier this week.
No injuries were sustained, a release from UO states.
“I want to apologize for my actions,” Bell said. “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.”
Bell is averaging 24.5 minutes per game and set the single-season record for blocks (71) by an Oregon player. While Bell has been one of the lone bright spots in the paint for a generally small Oregon team, he did struggle in Oregon’s latest win over Washington, with no blocks and four points.
Bell will be available for the Ducks later this week when Oregon travels to face USC and UCLA.
