LOS ANGELES - UCLA Head Men's Basketball Coach Ben Howland announced today that he has suspended Reeves Nelson indefinitely. Nelson will not be with the team when it hosts Middle Tennessee State Tuesday night at the Los Angeles Sports Arena.
Nelson, a junior forward, is being suspended for conduct unbecoming a member of the UCLA basketball team.
"This is a very disappointing situation for Reeves and our basketball program," said Howland. "We have a high standard and code of conduct that our student-athletes are expected to adhere to and Reeves has fallen short of our expectations."
Nelson's status with the team will be re-evaluated after he and Howland meet later this week.
