SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Utah has suspended guard Luka Drca for two games for an intentional foul committed in a loss to No. 4 Oklahoma.

Drca tripped Blake Griffin as the Sooners were on a fast break with a 14-point lead early in the second half of Saturday's game. Warren was called for a technical for getting up and jawing with Drca, who was called for an intentional foul.

Utah coach Jim Boylen said in a release Monday that he was suspending Drca for two games.

Boylen says he wasn't required to suspend Drca, but felt the trip was unacceptable behavior. The junior from Serbia will sit out Saturday's home game against Weber State and the Utes' road game against Utah State next Monday.
