Marcus Smart Suspended Three Games for Shoving Texas Tech Fan

ESPNU

Oklahoma State Men’s Basketball player Marcus Smart has been suspended by the Big 12 Conference after shoving a Texas Tech fan during Saturday night’s game.

Concerning the suspension, Big 12 Conference Commissioner Bob Bowlsby said, “Mr. Smart’s actions were a clear violation of the Big 12 Conference’s Sportsmanship and Ethical Conduct Policy. Such behavior has no place in athletics, and will not be tolerated.  I appreciate the efforts of Oklahoma State University athletics director Mike Holder in addressing this matter, and believe this is an appropriate response to an inappropriate action.”

Marcus Smart spoke at a press conference Sunday evening, “I want to apologize to the fan. I want to apologize to my teammates, my coaching staff, Coach Ford, my family and Oklahoma State University. This is not how I conduct myself. This is not his this program is run.  I let my emotions get the best of me and I am taking full responsibility. This is all upon me.”
