SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah freshman Marshall Henderson has been suspended one game for hitting a BYU player in a game last week.

Utes coach Jim Boylen said Monday that Henderson will sit out Wednesday against Colorado State.

Henderson was ejected with 34 seconds left in BYU's 82-69 win over Utah on Saturday in Provo for a flagrant foul on Jackson Emery.

Emery was following Henderson along the baseline after the initial play and had some words for the Utah player, who hit Emery in the face with a backhand.

Emery fell to the floor and officials ejected Henderson for fighting, which is an automatic suspension under NCAA rules.

Boylen said Henderson knows he made a mistake and will learn from it.
