New Mexico State junior guard K.C. Ross-Miller has been suspended two games and senior forward Renaldo Dixon will miss one for violating the Western Athletic Conference's sportsmanship rules in a postgame brawl at Utah Valley.
Ross-Miller hurled the ball at Utah Valley's Holton Hunsaker seconds after the Wolverines' 66-61 victory Thursday night. The ball hit Hunsaker — the son of Utah Valley coach Dick Hunsaker — in the leg. Some of the fans whot stormed the court following the victory got caught up in the chaos and punches were thrown.
New Mexico State guard DK Eldridge was in the middle of the scrum before he was dragged away by Aggies coaches as order was restored. With the victory, the Wolverines claimed the top spot in the conference standings.
The WAC announced the penalties Friday.
