Texas Tech coach Billy Gillispie announced Thursday that he has suspended freshman Terran Petteway one game after he was ejected in Wednesday's Big 12 contest against Kansas.

Petteway, who made contact with KU guard Conner Teahan, will sit out Saturday's road game at Texas A&M.

"No one could have a greater appreciation for playing hard more than I do," Gillispie said. "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."

Didn't league rules require a one game suspension anyway? I thought anyone ejected has to sit the next game regardless....
