Myck Kabongo's ban reduced

By ESPN.com staff


The NCAA continued to punish any coach or player who doesn't provide factual information during an enforcement interview, handing down a stringent 23-game suspension Friday to Texas sophomore guard Myck Kabongo.

Kabongo originally was banned for a year by the NCAA, but an appeals/reinstatement committee reduced the penalty to 23 games, which includes the 11 games the Longhorns (7-4) already have played.

Kabongo is eligible to return to the Longhorns on Feb. 13 against Iowa State with eight games remaining in the conference schedule. Kabongo will miss key conference home games against No. 9 Kansas (Jan. 19) and No. 24 Oklahoma State (Feb. 9), as well as road games at Oklahoma and Kansas State.
