Big 12 suspends Marcus Smart for three games

Posted: February 9, 2014 - 6:01pm

The Big 12 Conference suspended Oklahoma State sophomore guard Marcus Smart for three games for inappropriate conduct with a spectator.

“Mr Smart’s actions were a clear violation of the Big 12 Conference Sportsmanship and Ethical Conduct Policy,” Commissioner Bob Bowlsby said in the Big 12 statement. “Such behavior has no place in athletics, and will not be tolerated. I appreciate the efforts of Oklahoma State University athletics director Mike Holder in addressing this matter, and believe this is an appropriate response to an inappropriate action.”

Smart will return to the court on Feb. 22 when the Cowboys host Texas Tech.

Isn't that special

Smart comes back which fires up the OSU fans, and every time a Tech player goes into the stands, he gets mugged.
