MOSCOW (AP) -- Russian volleyball player Pavel Moroz has been given an 18-month doping ban.
The Russian anti-doping agency says the sanction is backdated to Nov. 12, 2018, around the time when the 32-year-old Moroz reportedly gave a positive sample.
The agency has not said what banned substance was found.
Known for his big serve, the Ukraine-born Moroz played 22 games for the Russian men's national team between 2012 and 2015 and has played for clubs in Russia and South Korea.
