New Mexico State have confirmed that Guard K.C. Ross-Miller has been suspended following the post-game brawl with the Utah Valley Wolverines.

The Aggies lost 66-61 to the Wolverines in overtime but the Game was marred by chaotic scenes following the final buzzer.

Ross-Miller was the player to make the first move in what would escalate to a full on brawl including players and fans alike, when he threw the ball at an opposing player as time expired.

Holton Hunsaker of Utah Valley was hit on the leg from close range which sparked outrage from everyone including his father, the coach of the Wolverines Dick Hunsaker.

New Mexico State coach Marvin Menzies said: ""No matter what provoked K.C., what he did was inexcusable and hence the suspension,

""It is an honor and a privilege to wear an Aggie uniform, and a responsibility comes with that privilege."

Menzies has stated that: "I will wait until I've had a chance to talk with our conference officials and university administration before any other disciplinary actions may or may not be taken."

Despite being branded as the instigator of the scenes, Ross-Miller is not the only Aggies player likely to be penalized.

Junior Guard DK Eldridge has been shown on video throwing a punch while team-mate Danny Mullings was forcibly held back from the carnage.

WAC Commissioner Jeff Hurd is also set to review the tape and many people expect further punishments to be dished out to those who acted rashly during the scuffle.
