Big Ten Suspends Michigan State's Brent Darnell One Game for Hit From Behind

Bill Rapai

The Big Ten Conference announced on Saturday afternoon that Michigan State senior forward Brent Darnell will be suspended for today's game against UMass as the result of a check from behind in Friday night's game against UMass.

Darnell was assessed a five-minute major and game misconduct at the 11:52 mark of the first period last night, and after the reviewing the play, the Big Ten has basically decided to extend that penalty to a game disqualification.

Darnell has 41 points in 108 career games for the Spartans.
