Texas Tech Director of Athletics Kirby Hocutt and Head Women’s Basketball Coach Candi Whitaker have announced disciplinary action against senior guard Amber Battle for her involvement in an incident on Saturday at the Texas Tech Student Recreation Center.

Battle will be suspended from competition for the entire month of November.

“During a pickup basketball game on June 28, I was involved in an incident with Texas Tech football player Nigel Bethel,” Battle said. “I initiated the first contact and I take full responsibility for my actions. I want to take this time to apologize to Nigel, the Texas Tech community, my teammates, coaches and fans. Nothing I can say can truly repair the harm I have already caused. I did not represent the Double T like I am supposed to and I promise to hold myself to a higher standard from here on.”

Bethel was dismissed from the football program on Sunday, June 29, for his involvement in the incident. Texas Tech Athletics does not tolerate violence against women.
