Big 12 Conference Chooses NOT to Suspend Pat Knight

The Big 12 Conference has decided not to suspend Texas Tech Men's Basketball Coach Pat Knight for his actions in the January 31st game against Nebraska, according to a Big 12 Conference news release.

Knight was ejected for confronting a referee during Tech's Saturday loss to Nebraska and ran onto the court three times. His actions were a violation of the Big 12 Conference's Principles and Standards of Sportsmanship.

Knight has admitted publicly he made a mistake and according to a written statement apologized to Conference Commissioner Dan Beebe. Beebe says Knight would have been punished more severely except for his past exemplary behavior.
