Wichita St coach suspended after getting tossed in Canada

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) Wichita State coach Gregg Marshall has been suspended for the last game of an exhibition tour in Canada after receiving two technical fouls and getting kicked out of a game against McGill University.

Shockers athletic director Daron Boatright said in a statement Wednesday that ''while I understand the competitive spirit that accompanies coaching, there remains a professional behavior that is inherent in a position of leadership that we must all meet.''

Marshall had to be restrained Tuesday night from chasing after two referees. He complained several times about physical play that resulted in one of Wichita State's players sustaining a concussion.

Marshall also received a technical foul in a game Sunday.

The Shockers finished their Canadian tour against a group of local professionals Wednesday.
