ACC suspends Louisville's Harrell 1 game

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) Louisville junior forward Montrezl Harrell was suspended for one game by the Atlantic Coast Conference on Sunday for a flagrant 2 foul and ejection Saturday in the Cardinals' 76-67 victory at Western Kentucky.

Harrell, a preseason All-America first-team selection, must sit out the No. 4 Cardinals' game Tuesday night against Cal State Northridge, and will be eligible to return for Saturday's rivalry game against top-ranked Kentucky. He was ejected with 38 seconds remaining in the first half after getting up from a loose ball scramble and throwing an elbow during a scuffle.

Harrell apologized to teammates at halftime and again after the game. The conference stated in a statement Sunday evening that it considers the matter closed.
