NMSU player suspended indefinitely after punching opponent in the face

Feb 3, 2024

New Mexico State men's basketball player Robert Carpenter was suspended indefinitely for landing a sucker punch on an opposing player during a game Thursday, the school announced Friday.

The fateful blow came midway through the first half of NMSU's 79-73 overtime win over Liberty. Carpenter exchanged a pull and a shove with Flames forward Shiloh Robinson while jostling for rebounding positioning, and the battle ended with Carpenter hitting Robinson in the face as he started running in transition.
