Kevin O'Neill suspended from tourney after altercation

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Southern California coach Kevin O'Neill has been suspended for the rest of the Pac-10 tournament after getting into a verbal confrontation with an Arizona booster.

The school announced the suspension about two hours before the Trojans played the Wildcats in the semifinals Friday night at Staples Center, saying assistant Bob Cantu would take over.

O'Neill apologized through multiple media outlets earlier Friday for what he said was a confrontation involving himself, his wife and the Arizona booster on Thursday night at the team's hotel after the Trojans' quarterfinal victory against California.
