Trojans’ Cherie Nelson Is Suspended, Will Miss Stanford Game Tonight

The USC women’s basketball team will play its first Pacific 10 Conference game of the season against Stanford at 7:30 tonight at Loyola Marymount without star center Cherie Nelson.

Nelson, the nation’s third-leading scorer with an average of 27.8 points a game, was suspended for disciplinary reasons by Coach Linda Sharp Thursday.

“We will start conference play without Cherie,” Sharp said . “Her future return to the team will be determined at a later date.”

USC (4-5) is coming off a 81-67 loss to eighth-ranked Maryland last Friday.
