    LOS ANGELES -- USC women's basketball coach Michael Cooper has been suspended by USC from today's (Friday, Dec. 21) 5 p.m. home game against UC Davis because of an NCAA secondary violation involving the use of an ineligible player in practice.

    Cooper will return from the one-game suspension to coach the Women of Troy against Duke on Saturday (Dec. 22) at noon.

    In Cooper's absence against UC Davis, associate head coach Daron Park will handle the coaching duties.

    USC is hosting the four-team Women of Troy Basketball Classic in the Galen Center today and Saturday. Besides the two USC games, Cal State Bakersfield plays Duke on Friday at 7:30 p.m. and then battles UC Davis on Saturday at 2:30 p.m.
