Official: Ervin suspended one game, $7,500 fine
Boti on Twitter:
OK. My (e)mail is Gary Ervin has a 1-match ban & $7500 fine. Expect something from @NBL soon.
Edit: NBL have made the official announcement:
Adelaide 36ers guard Gary Ervin has been handed a one game suspension and a $7,500 fine after three charges levelled against him were heard by an independent tribunal this afternoon.
Ervin was referred straight to the tribunal after a kneeing incident involving Melbourne Tigers player Chris Goulding in yesterday's Game 2 of the NBL Finals series.
He pleaded guilty to a Striking charge and was found guilty of Unduly Rough Play and Misconduct.
In addition to the penalty, Ervin has also been handed a suspended two-game ban and a suspended $10,000 fine. These penalties will apply if Ervin re-offends during the next two years.
The one game suspension rules Ervin out of tomorrow night’s Game 3 against Melbourne in Adelaide.
