East Carolina basketball doesn't often make the news and when it did Saturday, it was for all the wrong reasons.

The Pirates (12-7, 3-3 Conference USA) lost on a buzzer beater to UTEP and senior guard Shamarr Bowden was caught on video throwing punches at the Miners' Konner Tucker.

On Monday, ECU announced a one-game suspension for Bowden.
