New Mexico State suspended guard K.C. Ross-Miller on Friday morning, hours after he touched off a postgame brawl between the Aggies and Utah Valley.

Ross-Miller hurled the ball at Utah Valley's Holton Hunsaker as time expired in the Wolverines' 66-61 overtime victory Thursday in Orem, Utah. He picked up the ball at midcourt and fired it at Hunsaker -- who is Utah Valley coach Dick Hunsaker's son -- from close range, hitting him in the leg.

The win gave Utah Valley (17-10, 11-3) the inside track to the WAC regular-season title against New Mexico State (21-9, 10-3), and fans stormed the court at game's end.

In the ensuing chaos, at least one New Mexico State player threw a punch. The video stream on Utah Valley's website showed the player to be junior guard DK Eldridge. Staff also forcefully pulled the Aggies' Daniel Mullings away from the melee.

New Mexico State told of Ross-Miller's suspension, and WAC commissioner Jeff Hurd will also review the tape. Hurd was traveling to Cal State Bakersfield for the Aggies' game Saturday against the Roadrunners.

"No matter what provoked K.C., what he did was inexcusable and hence the suspension," New Mexico State coach Marvin Menzies said Friday. "It is an honor and a privilege to wear an Aggie uniform, and a responsibility comes with that privilege.
