The Ohio Valley Conference has suspended Jacksonville State coach James Green one game as punishment for collecting two technical fouls and being ejected from his team's loss to Tennessee Tech.
The league's commissioner suspended Green on Sunday after reviewing the plays that led to the coach's ejection Saturday night in a 78-64 loss on the road.
Green argued a foul call late in the game with Jacksonville State trailing 63-53, and officials gave him two technicals. Green also made contact with an official before being ejected.
He will sit out Jacksonville State's game Thursday night at Morehead State.
