The Big 12 has suspended Kansas’ Silvio De Sousa (12 games), David McCormack (two games) and Kansas State’s James Love (eight games), Antonio Gordon (three games) for their association in a fight between the groups Tuesday night, the alliance declared.
The two groups were likewise “reprimanded” for players leaving the seat during the occurrence, an infringement of the Big 12 Sportsmanship Policies.
A fight broke out between the Jayhawks and Wildcats toward the finish of the group’s Tuesday night matchup. Kansas State’s DaJuan Gordon took the ball in the last seconds of a Kansas victory when De Sousa obstructed the breakaway layup and remained over the Wildcats’ forward. The two seats at that point purged, and De Sousa was seen lifting a stool over his head before it dropped out of his hands.
De Sousa was recently suspended uncertainly by Kansas mentor Bill Self “pending the final outcome of the review by KU and the Big 12 Conference” on Tuesday evening. His 12-game suspension implies they isn’t qualified to return until the Jayhawks’ normal season finale at Texas Tech and will miss the Kansas-Kansas State rematch on Feb. 29.
Wednesday night, De Sousa gave an expression of remorse proclamation on Twitter. They stated: “I displayed highly unacceptable behavior that was a poor representation of my team as well as my own character… I not only showed a lack of sportsmanship, but I put myself, my teammates and the fans in danger.”
“This kind of behavior cannot be tolerated and these suspensions reflect the severity of last evening’s events,” Big 12 chief Bob Bowlsby said. “I am appreciative of the cooperation of both institutions in resolving this matter.”
Self told correspondents on a Big 12 video chat that Kansas acknowledged obligation regarding its job in the fight.
