Iowa State men’s basketball players Abdel Nader and Matt Thomas will be suspended for the team’s first two games this season, ISU coach Fred Hoiberg announced Wednesday at the team’s media day.

Both players plead guilty earlier this year to OWI, Nader’s stemming from an arrest in April and Thomas’ in June.

“Since that time I’ve been very proud of how both of those guys have conducted themselves,” Hoiberg said, “and will continue to conduct themselves when they’re in an Iowa State uniform and on this campus.”
