More problems continue to dog the Oregon Ducks basketball program.
Multiple sources reported that Jalil Abdul-Bassit and Elgin Cook were cited last month and charged with shoplifting at a grocery store right across the street from Matthew Knight Arena.
The Register-Guard first reported that Abdul-Bassit and Cook were caught with stolen goods on Sept. 12.
Cook and Abdul-Bassist were both cited in lieu of custody for theft in the third degree, a Class C misdemeanor where the stolen property is less than $100, and given a date to appear in court, the Portland Oregonian reported.
Oregon head coach Dana Altman said he was aware of the incident the day it happened and the two players have been disciplined.
“We are disappointed with these two young men,” Altman said. “We expect our student-athletes to conduct themselves as solid members of this community and team. Both were being disciplined internally.”
The two arrests come months after the Oregon program saw three players kicked off the team following sexual assault accusations.
