Kyle Anderson, Jordan Adams suspended one game for violation of team rules

UCLA’s already slim chances at catching Arizona for the Pac-12 lead may have just disappeared.

The team suspended leading scorers Jordan Adams and Kyle Anderson one game each for a violation of team rules. They will sit out when the Bruins tip off against Oregon at 8 p.m. tonight. The pair combines to average 32.1 points — over a third of the squad’s total output — as well as 14.2 rebounds, 9.1 assists and 4.6 steals.

The Ducks have the conference’s second-highest scoring offense behind UCLA, and lost their prior matchup in Eugene by just two points. With four games left in the regular season, the Bruins sit 2.5 games behind the Wildcats for first place.

Likely in line for their first career starts are freshman guards Zach LaVine and Bryce Alford. LaVine scored 14 points at Stanford last Saturday, his first double-digit effort in nearly a month, while Alford has averaged 7.8 points and 2.3 assists in his last eight games.

    Tough to win with selfish teammates.

    What is the score?

    Tough to win when your big’s don’t rebound, or provide any inside threat. How many rebounds did Parker, or the Wear twins have combined?. At least Parker will try to rebound, but the twins, man, I just don’t get it. How can you be that size, and not be a decent rebounder? And can any of UCLA’s big’s go up strong and dunk??? It’s mind boggling how many how many scoring opportunities around the rim they squander.

      Parker had 10 rebounds in 19 minutes. He should have played more. Wears simply aren’t rebounders and last night didn’t block out again.

    Shame on Kyle and Jordan for putting themselves above team. You couldn’t refrain from smoking weed and came to practice intoxicated? There is no “I” in Team you selfish duo.
