Freshman guard suspended after DUI

Freshman guard Ray Willis did not suit up for the Sooners' game against Colorado on Saturday after being charged with a DUI early Saturday morning, said Norman police.

Willis, a 19-year-old from Atlanta, Georgia, was pulled over for a minor traffic violation at 3:16 am on Saturday morning on Asp Avenue, said Lt. Blake Green of Norman PD.  He was then arrested for a DUI and taken to the Cleveland Count Detention Center where he was released after bond was posted.

Earlier this year, Willis and Sooner football player Frank Alexander were both stabbed at a night club in Norman four hours after the Sooners' defeated Tennessee-Chattanooga. According to police, a brawl erupted in which guns, knives and tire irons were used.  

While he didn't suit up, Willis was on the sideline for Saturday's game.  After the Sooners' 77-72 victory, coach Jeff Capel said that Willis was "suspended indefinitely", but refused to offer any additional details.
