Pittsburgh sophomore wing J.J. Moore has been suspended for one game by the NCAA due to his participation in an unauthorized summer league game.

According to a source, Moore - who is expected to battle Lamar Patterson for a starting spot with the departure of Gilbert Brown - will sit out the season-opener against Albany on Friday night.

The 6-foot-6 Moore averaged 3.7 points per game last season.

Pittsburgh enters the season ranked No. 10 in the country.

To further clarify where the author seems to have left out some information relating to Moore's (as well as Pitt's) honesty in the matter, Moore unknowingly played in an unauthorized summer league game, but informed the coaches upon realizing that the game was unauthorized. Pitt reported the situation to the NCAA and the suspension was issued (see ).

Nice to see some honesty by the kid, as well as transparency by Pitt.  The battle between Moore and Patterson for playing time (though both will likely see some time at the 2) shoudl be interesting as the season progresses.
