RICHMOND, Va. -- Drexel men's basketball coach Bruiser Flint will miss the Dragons' game against Memphis after being suspended for violating the Colonial Athletic Association's standards of sportsmanship.

CAA commissioner Tom Yeager suspended Flint for one game after the Dragons' coach was ejected during a loss Saturday at Bucknell. Flint will serve the suspension Monday, when he'll miss a chance to coach against Memphis' John Calipari for the first time.

Flint was Calipari's assistant for seven seasons at Massachusetts. He took over at UMass when Calipari took a job with the New Jersey Nets in 1996. Flint is now in his eighth season at Drexel.
