Northwestern center Nikola Cerina and Ohio State forward LaQuinton Ross were both ejected from last night’s 76-60 win for the No. 24 Buckeyes.
Cerina and Amir Williams got tangled up and, after a lengthy review, the referees determined that he threw a punch. Ross didn’t, however, and was instead ejected for a pair of dead-ball technical fouls. Those were the result of Ross pushing Cerina and Drew Crawford.
Throw a punch is ruled fighting, which means that Cerina is suspended for a game even though he didn’t make contact. Ross was not ejected for fighting, and thus does not face a one-game suspension.
Here’s the full statement from the lead official on Wednesday night:
