On a play away from the ball Red Raider freshman Terran Petteway got wrapped up with Conner Teahan and let his emotions get the best of him as it looked as though Petteway took a swing a Teahan.
After reviewing the play, the officials came out and ejected Petteway from the game.
On Thursday, Tech came out with the news that Petteway will not play in the Red Raiders game against Texas A&M in College Station on Saturday.
one could have a greater appreciation for playing hard more than I do," said
Texas Tech head coach Billy Gillispie in a news release. "Our success
will be determined by playing hard at the highest level. However, we do
not and will never condone an emotional outburst of the physical nature like
what happened last night. We will learn how to compete extremely hard in
a sportsmanlike manner and represent the Red Raiders in a way of class.
That being said, Terran knew he acted wrongly and was
immediately apologetic. He understands that he must suffer the
consequences for his actions. We will all use this as learning experience
and move forward in a positive way."
On the season Petteway is averaging 4.6 points per game and 2.2 rebounds per game for the Red Raiders, but will not be on the court for Tech on Saturday.
