LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Southern California forward Jerry Dupree has been suspended for the first six games of the basketball season.
Dupree, a junior, will still be able to practice with the Trojans, team spokesman Paul Goldberg said Tuesday. He will sit out six games to focus on his priorities, the school said.
Dupree averaged 3.7 points and 1.8 rebounds last season and helped the Trojans to a runner-up finish in the Pac-10 Conference tournament, with averages of 10.3 points and 3.7 rebounds.
USC opens the season Nov. 26 against San Diego.
