HIROSHIMA, Japan -- New Zealand point guard Mark Dickel will miss the first three games of the world championships as part of a 10-day suspension from FIBA for failing a drug test last month.

Dickel was suspended by his national federation for two games after failing a drug test taken in July, and was included on the team's roster for the world championships on Saturday. But FIBA met Friday night and determined New Zealand's punishment wasn't enough and imposed a 10-day suspension that means he will miss New Zealand's first three games, starting with Saturday night's meeting with Spain.

The 6-foot-2 Dickel, a member of the national team since the 2000 Olympics, was suspended by Basketball New Zealand last week after testing positive for cannabis in results returned Aug. 11. Dickel, who played at UNLV from 1996-2000, missed two exhibition games against Qatar.

FIBA's drug regulations, which follow the WADA code, call for a two-year suspension for a first violation. However, in a case of "specified substances," such as cannabis, when the player can prove he did not intend to enhance his performance by using the substance, the range of sanctions is from a warning up to one year of ineligibility.

Basketball New Zealand acting chief executive Barry Wilson said he was disappointed with the sanction.

"It must bring into question the status and validity of the New Zealand anti-doping process and the need for another hearing process here," Wilson said in a statement.

New Zealand finished fourth in the 2002 world championships with Dickel averaging 6.7 points and 4.6 assists.

Dickel, who played last season for Lokomotiv Rostov in Russia, will also miss games against Germany and Angola. He will be eligible for the last two games of the first round against Japan and Panama. The top four teams in each of the six-team groups advance to the single-elimination round of 16.

He probably got them from Tom Brady.
Brady's been seen in a number of dark alleys in New Zealand and Russia lately with suitcases meeting shady characters.

in case you were wondering... this is mark dickel




not exactly mark mcgwire in size and stature.

those on steroids and other performance enhancing drugs come in all sorts of sizes and shape... there are drugs to help an athlete in just about anything they want, except for development of actuall skill.

there are steroid abusers in every sport... even european football/soccer. they just haven't been caught yet.

The hell with steroids, he should be banned for grabbing his opponent's family jewels in the middle of a game.

exactly, you dont have to be huge to be on steroids. one of the biggest things is steroids helps recovery time, which is beneficial for mlb pitchers. or saaaaay an NFL quarterback who takes a pounding every week. *cough*brady*cough*

Panthers took massive steroids, report says...

Players using alarmingly high amounts during run to 2004 Super Bowl


if this happened in baseball it would be huuuuuuuuge news. yet it happens in football, and people cant bring themselves to stop talking about TO to mention it. its really quite confusing.

Like everyone's been saying, baseball players have just been the ones caught in the cookie jar.

i guess in this case it's the "hypodermic needles containing performance enhancing drugs" jar.

this report has caught NFL players red handed with their hands in the cookie jar, yet its not even mentioned on sportscenter

if a report came out that said 3 or 4 players on the astros were severly juiced up on steroids on their way to the WS that it would be completely ignored? i dont think so.

Whats also confusing is that you didn't apologize to Tom Brady for wrongly titling a thread that he used steroids, nor acknowledging his greatness for being able to beat a team laden with steroid fueled supermen in the Super Bowl.

Tom Brady should be recognized as the steroid defeater.

they're all juiced.

there isn't a single player in all of professional sports that it would shock me if it came out they were on some sort of performance enhancer... from tiger woods to albert pujols to david eckstein to david wright to tom brady to eli and peyton manning to michael jordan to blah blah blah.

no one would shock me.

and frankly? i could care less.
