NMSU Suspends Player for Inciting Basketball Brawl

By  | 

New Mexico State has decided to suspend guard K.C. Ross-Miller for actions that touched off a wild brawl between players and fans following a game between the Aggies and Utah Valley.

A league spokesman said the Western Athletic Conference is also is looking into the incident.

New Mexico State's Ross-Miller hurled the ball at Utah Valley's Holton Hunsaker seconds after the Wolverines' 66-61 victory over the Aggies on Thursday night in Orem, Utah. The ball hit Hunsaker - the son of Utah Valley coach Dick Hunsaker - in the leg, and fans rushed the court.

In a statement released Friday by the Aggies, coach Marvin Menzies said he suspended Ross-Miller indefinitely pending review by the school and the conference.

WAC Commissioner Jeff Hurd is expected to speak later Friday with Menzies about the incident.
