The NCAA suspension of Texas guard Myck Kabongo has been revised to 23 games, days after the NCAA ruled that the sophomore would be suspended for the rest of the season for receiving impermissible benefits.
The announcement came in a statement Friday after Texas appealed the season-long ban earlier this week.
According to Jeff Goodman of CBSSports.com, Kabongo provided misinformation about the incident to university officials on two separate occasions.
Kabongo is now slated to return to the Texas lineup Feb. 13 against Iowa State, meaning he will miss 12 more games.
In his absence, Texas has seen a range of performances, once losing to Division II Chaminade, then coming back this week to beat No. 23 North Carolina, 85-67.
In addition to the suspension, Kabongo will be required to pay back $475 in impermissible benefits.
