The Big Ten has suspended Iowa basketball coach Fran McCaffery for one game and fined Iowa $10,000 for his tirade during Sunday’s loss at Wisconsin. McCaffery received two technical fouls and was ejected for arguing with officials with just under 12 minutes remaining in the second half. He will sit out Thursday’s home game against Northwestern.
