Iowa forward Cordell Pemsl suspended for Indiana game on Thursday

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- University of Iowa men’s basketball junior Cordell Pemsl was arrested early Monday morning in Iowa City for driving while his license was revoked.

Pemsl will be suspended for Iowa’s next game at Indiana (Thursday) per violation of the UI Student-Athlete Code of Conduct.

Pemsl, a native of Dubuque, Iowa, has played in 22 games this season, averaging 2.4 points and 2.8 rebounds per game.

The 6-foot-8 forward also was suspended in September after being arrested and charged with drunken driving.

The loss of Pemsl means that Iowa will only have eight scholarship players for the Indiana game, and that includes former walk-on Riley Till, who is currently on scholarship.

Iowa coach Fran McCaffery has mostly used an eight-player rotation this season with Pemsl one of three key reserves off the bench.

Iowa faces Indiana on Thursday at 7 p.m. in Bloomington, Ind. The game will be televised on the Big Ten Network.
