Big 12 Hands Out Suspension To Marcus Smart For Shoving Fan

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports
The Big 12 has suspended Oklahoma State star guard Marcus Smart for three games after shoving a Texas Tech fan in the final seconds of Saturday's game. You can watch the incident here. Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby said in a statement...

"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."
Apparently Texas Tech conducted its own investigation of the altercation and said no racial slur was heard. In a statement released through the school, Orr denied using a slur and said he was sorry for calling Smart "piece of crap."...
quote:

“I would like to take this opportunity to offer my sincere apologies to Marcus Smart, Oklahoma State, Tubby Smith and the Texas Tech Men's Basketball program," Orr said in a statement. "My actions last night were inappropriate and do not reflect myself or Texas Tech -- a university I love dearly. I regret calling Mr. Smart a 'piece of crap' but I want to make it known that I did not use a racial slur of any kind. Additionally, I would like to offer my apologies to Texas Tech fans that have been embarrassed by the attention this incident has created."
