For Texas A&M Commerce, Ant Abraham, Kwo Agwa and Jerome Brewer Jr. have been suspended for three games while Prince Davies has been handed a one game suspension.

Commissioner Chris Grant released the following statement:

“The Southland Conference Board of Directors has set clear expectations for sportsmanship and behavior of our student-athletes, coaches, and spectators during and after competitions. Unfortunately, these expectations were not met on Monday night, and the Southland Conference will not tolerate any unsportsmanlike behavior. I would like to extend our appreciation to A&M-Commerce Athletics Director Jim Curry and UIW Athletics Director Richard Duran for their unwavering partnership and diligent resolution of this matter.”
