Texas Tech Head Basketball Coach Billy Gillispie has announced a one-game suspension for freshman Terran Petteway after being ejected in last night's Big 12 contest against the University of Kansas.

Petteway's suspension will be in effect for Saturday's road game at Texas A&M (12:45 p.m. tip on the Big 12 Network).

"No one could have a greater appreciation for playing hard more than I do," said Gillispie. "Our success will be determined by playing hard at the highest level. However, we do not and will never condone an emotional outburst of the physical nature like what happened last night. We will learn how to compete extremely hard in a sportsmanlike manner and represent the Red Raiders in a way of class. That being said, Terran knew he acted wrongly and was immediately apologetic. He understands that he must suffer the consequences for his actions. We will all use this as learning experience and move forward in a positive way."
