Grand Forks, ND (WDAY TV) - The UND men's basketball team lost a tight game Saturday afternoon to Northern Arizona, 74-72 in overtime. In the wake of some postgame comments made by play-by play man Paul Ralston, the school has suspended him for the next 2 games.

UND had a slight lead late in regulation, only to see the Lumberjacks rally and then win the game in overtime. Ralston used the term "choke job" when interviewing head coach Brian Jones after the game. We asked to speak with athletic director Brian Faison today, but were declined for an interview request. Ralston directed all comments to the athletic department.
