Wisconsin coach Greg Gard was also found to be in violation of the conference’s sportsmanship policy. Gard is being fined $10,000 with no suspension.

For their roles in the altercation, Michigan’s Terrance Williams II (forward), Moussa Diabate (forward), and Wisconsin’s Jahcobi Neath (guard) were also in violation of the Big Ten Conference’s Sportsmanship Policy. Those players are each being suspended for 1 game, effective immediately.

“Big Ten Conference coaches and student-athletes are expected to display the highest level of sportsmanship conduct,” Warren said via the release. “I am grateful for the partnership with Michigan Athletics Director, Warde Manuel and Wisconsin Athletics Director, Chris McIntosh. Our expectation is that the incident yesterday will provide our coaches and student-athletes with the opportunity to reflect, learn and move forward in a manner that demonstrates decorum and leadership on and off of the court.”
