Chattanooga suspends player for one game after flagrant foul against Davidson

Chattanooga coach John Shulman announced Tuesday morning that forward Matt Gwynne has been suspended by the school for Saturday's game against Appalachian State, after Gwynne hit Davidson's Thomas Sander with an elbow during Saturday's game.

"We just had a young man make an unfortunate decision on Saturday," Shulman said.

Video footage of the incident (see lower in the blog) had been sent to the Southern Conference office Monday. Gwynne, who played one high school season at Gaston Day School, was not ejected Saturday but was called for a flagrant foul.
