Pemsl will miss Iowa’s next game

Cordell Pemsl

IOWA CITY — University of Iowa men’s basketball player Cordell Pemsl has been suspended for Thursday’s game against Indiana for a violation of the school’s student-athlete code of conduct.

Pemsl, a 6-foot-9 junior, was arrested in Iowa City early Monday morning for driving with a revoked license. According to police reports, Pemsl was pulled over because of a broken taillight cover, and he was taken into custody when he was unable to produce a valid driver’s license.

He faces a charge of driving with a revoked license, a serious misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail.

Pemsl was suspended for two games when he pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated in September, resulting in the loss of his license for six months.

Pemsl has played in 22 of Iowa’s 24 games this season, averaging 2.4 points and 2.8 rebounds per game while coming off the bench.

Iowa will have only eight scholarship players available for Thursday night’s game at Indiana. The Hawkeyes play at Minnesota on Sunday.
