Oklahoma State guard Marcus Smart was suspended after confronting and shoving a Texas Tech fan when he went out of bounds on Saturday night. That led to an investigation in the Big 12 that resulted in the ban and to Texas Tech conducting their own investigation.

The fan in question will not attend any more games this season and volunteered his punishment.

Here is Orr’s complete statement, via CBS Sports:

“I would like to take this opportunity to offer my sincere apologies to Marcus Smart, Oklahoma State, Tubby Smith and the Texas Tech Men’s Basketball program. My actions last night were inappropriate and do not reflect myself or Texas Tech – a university I love dearly. I regret calling Mr. Smart a “piece of crap” but I want to make it known that I did not use a racial slur of any kind. Additionally, I would like to offer my apologies to Texas Tech fans that have been embarrassed by the attention this incident has created.”

Tech has since released GoPro video of the incident:
