EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) -Emporia State suspended coach David Moe for one game Thursday for knocking over a water cooler after he was ejected at the end of regulation in the team's 93-89 overtime loss to Newman a day earlier.
Referees assessed two technical fouls against Moe on Wednesday with 54.6 seconds left in regulation and the Hornets trailing 70-67. Moe went on the court to argue face-to-face with officials and then knocked over Newman's water cooler on his way to the locker room.
Athletic Director Kent Weiser said Moe's behavior was unacceptable.
``Even though collegiate athletics is intense and can at times be highly emotional, it is important that coaches and players keep their emotions in check,'' he said. ``I appreciate coach Moe's intensity, but in this case, our expected levels of sportsmanship were compromised.''
Moe's suspension will cover the team's game Saturday at the University of Nebraska-Omaha, where assistant coach Ben McCollum will assume head coaching duties.
In a written statement, Moe apologized, saying ``with as much character we have as a team, the head coach can't go out and act like an idiot. I'm embarrassed but we'll learn from it and work to set a better example.''
