Iowa basketball announces suspension of Cordell Pemsl
Iowa has announced that junior Cordell Pemsl has been suspended for the team’s upcoming game against Indiana on Thursday. The program sent out a release on Monday.
Pemsl’s suspension comes in response to an arrest that occurred early Monday morning in Iowa City. The junior was driving while his license had been revoked, according to a release from the team. Because Pemsl violated the University of Iowa Student-Athlete Code of Conduct, he will serve a suspension.
The release did not indicate whether Pemsl will be suspended after the Indiana game, so it appears that it will be a one-game punishment for the junior.
Pemsl has appeared 22 games for the Hawkeyes this season, averaging 2.4 points and 2.8 rebounds per game. He is a native of Dubuque, Iowa.
Iowa heads to Bloomington to take on Indiana at 8 p.m. ET on Thursday. The Hawkeyes are 17-7 on the season with an 8-5 mark in B1G play. They are 1.5 games out of first place in the conference standings.
