Guard Dominic Artis and forward Ben Carter have each been suspended by the No. 19 Oregon men’s basketball team for the season’s first nine games for selling team apparel. The length of the suspension was announced Thursday, two days after the school revealed the NCAA violations. Artis and Carter did not accompany the team on its trip to South Korea for the Ducks’ opener against Georgetown today. Both must donate the value of the apparel to charity. Artis, a sophomore, averaged 8.5 points and 3.2 assists last season. Carter, also a sophomore, averaged 2.4 points and 2.3 rebounds. – Associated Press
