We now know the baseline punishment for Juwan Howard following his dust-up with members of the Wisconsin Badgers coaching staff on Sunday.

Per The Athletic’s Brendan Quinn, “Juwan Howard’s impending suspension will be, per the Big Ten Sportsmanship Policy, the league office is limited to 2 games and a $10,000 fine.”

“That said,” Quinn added. “Anticipate the league and Michigan to jointly issue the penalty, meaning U-M can add its own additional games/sanctions.”

Tensions boiled over in Madison when Howard took exception to a timeout called by Badgers head coach Greg Gard with 15 seconds left in the game. Wisconsin was already up 15 at that point, with the game well in hand.

This set the Michigan head coach off. Prompting Howard to have some choice words for Gard and the rest of the Badgers’ staff. Tempers escalated so much that Howard actually took a swipe at a Wisconsin assistant and landed a blow.

It was definitely not the scene the Big Ten or NCAA would like to see. Especially considering the prominence of the two programs.
