FRISCO, Texas (AP) -The Southland Conference upheld on Tuesday the one-game suspension of Texas State's Brent Benson, who was disciplined for being involved in the bench clearing-brawl last week between the Bobcats and Southeastern Louisiana.
Both teams were reprimanded by the league for fighting in the Feb. 4 game.
Southeastern Louisiana's Chris Cyprian was also suspended for the altercation last week and sat out Saturday's game with Texas-San Antonio.
M-Corpus Christi.
The fight broke out in the second half of the SE Louisiana-Texas State. 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.''
