Arizona basketball suspends Ira Lee for regular season opener

The Arizona Wildcats announced the suspension of sophomore forward Ira Lee in a statement on Tuesday.
The suspension comes after Lee was cited and later released for driving under the influence back in August. He will miss the team’s regular-season opener against Houston Baptist.
“Arizona Athletics has announced that sophomore forward Ira Lee will be suspended for the team’s regular season opener versus Houston Baptist University due to a violation of the university’s student code of conduct and Arizona Athletics’ community standards related to an incident earlier this year,” the statement read.
A police report obtained by the Arizona Daily Star said Lee blew a 0.215 and 0.198 on two breathalyzer tests after he was pulled over for pulling out in front of another car, nearly hitting it, and then driving the wrong way down a street.
