Oregon guards Dominic Artis and Ben Carter were suspended for multiple games for selling team equipment in violation of NCAA rules, the school announced late Tuesday.

The two were suspended indefinitely, and they will miss Friday's nationally televised game against Georgetown.

"Ben and Dominic are two good young men who made a poor decision that was against NCAA rules," Oregon coach Dana Altman said, according to CBSSports.com. "I feel that both regret their decisions and the impact that it has on their teammates and our university."

DuckTerritory.com reported Artis, Carter and three former Oregon players sold basketball shoes. Oregon self-reported the violation to the NCAA, and the players have appealed for reinstatement.

Artis, a point guard, averaged 24 minutes and 8.5 points per game last season as a freshman, when he started 25 of the 28 games he played.

Carter, a power forward, averaged 10 minutes per game last season.
