Seton Hall has announced that they will be suspending point guard Sterling Gibbs two games for an incident that took place on Monday night. The report comes from the school and was first tweeted out by ESPN's Jeff Borzello.
The Pirates guard was involved in an ugly event, when he threw his elbow/forearm at Villanova point guard Ryan Arcidiacono during Seton Hall's clash with the Wildcats at The Pavilion.
The former Texas Longhorn has already apologized for what transpired on the court, via his Twitter account.
Per Nicole Auerbach of USA TODAY Sports, current Big East commissioner Val Ackerman has issued a statement on Gibbs' suspension, agreeing with the decision:
