UCLA’s Dragovic arrested and suspended

UCLA’s leading returning scorer from last season, forward Nikola Dragovic, was suspended for last night’s game against Cal State Bakersfield after his arrest for felony assault. The arrest stems from an incident last month at a concert in Hollywood. “This is an unfortunate situation for Nikola,” Coach Ben Howland said. “Our staff and players will do what we can to help him during this time. He made us aware of the incident when it occurred, but until this morning, we did not know charges would be filed.” Dragovic opened this season with five points and 14 rebounds in a loss to Cal State Fullerton.

Robertson was averaging 18.0 points per game prior to the injury.

Ebanks was expected to have a breakout season this year after averaging 10.5 points and 7.8 rebounds during his freshman campaign.
