Nov. 8, 2002

UCLA freshman guard Ortal Oren will sit out the first three games of the 2002-03 regular season for playing on a basketball club team in Israel with players who the NCAA considered to be professional athletes. The three-game suspension was determined by the NCAA Division I Student-Athlete Reinstatement Process.

Oren, who is eligible to play in UCLA's two exhibition games on Nov. 9 and 17, will make her regular season debut with the Bruins on December 1st in the second round matchup at the UNLV Tournament.
