KANSAS CITY, MO (AP) - The Big 12 Conference has suspended Texas Tech coach Pat Knight one game for complaining about the officials after Saturday's loss to Texas A&M.

Knight received a technical foul in the second half of the 79-73 loss for arguing a foul call and complained about the officials after the game to reporters, saying he didn't care what the Big 12 thought.

The son of Bob Knight, Pat Knight also was publicly reprimanded by the Big 12 earlier this month for being ejected after running onto the court twice to argue a foul call in a game against Nebraska.

Assistant coach Stew Robinson will replace Knight for Wednesday's game against Texas.

The Red Raiders are 12-15 overall, 2-10 in conference in their first full season under Pat Knight.
