USC disciplines Metu after flagrant foul

LOS ANGELES (AP) Forward Chimezie Metu will give up his role as team captain and issue a written apology as part of his discipline by Southern California after his flagrant foul in a win over Washington State.

Metu kicked Cougars guard Carter Skaggs in the groin and was ejected late in the first half on Sunday.

The school said Monday night that Metu will sit out the first half of USC's game against California on Thursday. In a letter to Skaggs, Metu apologized to the player, Cougars coach Ernie Kent and the rest of the Washington State team, as well as to his USC teammates and fans.

The Pac-12 approved coach Andy Enfield's discipline and said it would take no further action.

Metu acknowledged his inappropriate action, saying ''a lack of judgment for a split second led to an action that I immediately regretted and had no business committing in the first place. I understand there is no place in the game of basketball for such an unsportsmanlike action.''

The junior also wrote that he is ''prepared to take any necessary steps to ensure that I am not involved in such an incident moving forward.''
