As for Gard, he avoided a suspension, but got hit in his wallet. The Badgers head coach received a $10,000 fine.

Additionally, Michigan players Terrance Williams II and Moussa Diabate, along with Wisconsin's Jahcobi Neath, will all be suspended one game effective immediately.

Howard will miss the remainder of the regular season as a result of his ban. The second-year head coach will be eligible to return for the Big Ten Tournament.

Williams and Diabate will sit out Michigan's home game against Rutgers on Wednesday, while Heath will miss Wednesday's road trip to Minnesota.
