NCAA suspends Texas' Kabongo 23 games

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The NCAA has suspended Texas basketball player Myck Kabongo for 23 games for accepting impermissible benefits and providing false statements during an investigation into the infractions.

The Division I committee on student-athlete reinstatement announced the suspension Friday.

Kabongo also must repay $475 to a charity of his choice. The suspension includes the 10 games he has already missed.

The NCAA says Kabongo accepted airfare and personal training instruction and then provided false and misleading information about the infractions during two interviews with university officials.

University officials were notified of the decision last week, the NCAA said. An appeal was heard Thursday, and the NCAA decided to overturn the original decision to suspend Kabongo for the entire season.

Kabongo started 34 games last season.
