Southeastern Louisiana's Chris Cyprian sat out of Saturday's game with Texas-San Antonio.
The two were ejected after an altercation in the second half of their game in San Marcos. Players from both teams then rushed the floor and had to be separated before Benson, Cyprian and two other players were ejected.
``It was an altercation that was very regrettable and is not what we stand for,'' Southeastern head coach Jim Yarbrough said in a statement posted on the team's Web site about Cyprian's suspension. ``There is no room for fighting in this game.''
