The UNIVERSITY OF NORTH DAKOTA has suspended men's basketball radio voice PAUL RALSTON for two games for using the phrase "choke job" in a post-game interview.
The GRAND FORKS HERALD reports that RALSTON will not call WEDNESDAY's game at NORTHERN COLORADO or SATURDAY's game at UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA-OMAHA. In an interview with UND coach BRIAN JONES after SATURDAY's loss to NORTHERN ARIZONA in overtime, RALSTON used the offending phrase, leading the school to pull him from the broadcasts.
