Castiglione Upset by Ruling
January 12, 2007

NORMAN, Okla. -- University of Oklahoma Athletics Director Joe Castiglione issued the following statement Friday evening. 
 
The statement is in response to a two-game suspension handed down on OU men's basketball player Longar Longar.
 
“We all regret that an injury occurred in this situation and continue to wish a full and quick recovery to Esmir Rizvic.
 
"At the same time, we are very disappointed in the Big 12 Conference decision as it relates to Longar. We strongly support Longar and our team and utilized every avenue available to us, including an appeal, to the fullest extent. 
 
"We strenuously disagree that suspension from competition is warranted."
