ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) The Big Ten suspended Illinois guard Alan Griffin two games Thursday for stepping on Purdue's Sasha Stefanovic.

Griffin was called for a flagrant foul 2 and ejected with 12:21 left in the first half Tuesday at Purdue when he stomped on Stefanovic's midsection after the guard drove for a layup and drew a crescendo of boos. No. 21 Illinois went on to win 79-62.

Griffin, averaging 8.4 points, will miss games against Michigan on Saturday and Minnesota on Jan. 30. He apologized Wednesday to Stefanovic and Purdue as well as Illinois and its fans on social media.

Kansas forward Silvio De Sousa, who already was suspended indefinitely by Jayhawks coach Bill Self, was given a 12-game suspension by the league office. His teammate, David McCormack, was suspended two games while Kansas State forward James Love received an eight-game suspension and Antonio Gordon got a three-game suspension.

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) St. Bonaventure coach Mark Schmidt called two timeouts while trying to halt Dayton's end-of-the-half run. With Jalen Crutcher hitting 3s and Obi Toppin making dunks, it was a futile task.

Crutcher matched his career high with 23 points, Toppin had four dunks, and No. 7 Dayton - playing with its highest ranking in 52 years - showed off its versatility while pulling away to an 86-60 victory over St. Bonaventure on Wednesday night.
