More Wyoming, New Mexico players penalized for brawl  

Associated Press    
Thu, Feb 1, 2007

CHEYENNE, Wyo. -- Two more players were suspended - one indefinitely - and two had their suspensions extended Thursday by the Mountain West Conference for fighting during New Mexico`s home win over Wyoming on Tuesday.

The penalties were agreed upon by the schools and the conference.

Wyoming`s Brandon Ewing and Brad Jones - the team`s top scorers - and New Mexico`s Jamaal Smith were ejected from the game and automatically suspended from their team`s next game. Wyoming plays at No. 16 Air Force and New Mexico is at Colorado State - both on Saturday.

Oddsmakers have not released lines for either of these games at this time.

The conference suspended Jones and Smith for an additional game, and added a one-game suspension for New Mexico`s Darren Prentice. They`ll serve those suspensions when New Mexico visits Wyoming on March 3.

Wyoming suspended Joseph Taylor indefinitely.

New Mexico players Daniel Faris, J.R. Giddens and Aaron Johnson received reprimands.

``This altercation was extremely unfortunate, totally unacceptable and reflected negatively on the conference and the two participating institutions,`` Mountain West Commissioner Craig Thompson said.

The fight occurred with 1:10 left to go in the game, which New Mexico won 91-83.

It began when Ewing, the league`s leading scorer, became entangled with Smith. As players from both teams converged, Jones shoved Giddens, and Smith threw a punch at Jones.

Ewing and Jones have accounted for 48 percent of Wyoming`s scoring this season, 51 percent of its 3-point shooting, 45 percent of its steals, and 63 percent of the team`s free throws and assists.
