Oregon State got some good news heading into Thursday’s Pac-12 opener.
Power forward Eric Moreland will be allowed to return from his suspension two games earlier than expected, having fulfilled the requirements for immediately eligibility. Head coach Craig Robinson made the announcement in a press release on New Year’s Day.
Moreland was suspended for 14 games for a violation of team rules. He was scheduled to return January 9th at home against Stanford. He’ll be playing in Thursday’s trip to No. 20 Colorado instead. Robinson will reportedly address the media about the decision after the game.
Moreland averaged 9.4 points, 10.6 boards and 2.5 blocks as a junior.
