"At Minnesota on Jan. 23, 1972, Ohio State led Minnesota 50-44 with 36 seconds to go. Luke Witte was fouled hard while going up for a layup. Minnesota's Corky Taylor quickly extended an arm to help Witte up but instead kneed him in the groin and punched him in the head. Minnesota's Ron Behagen escalated the assault by kicking and stomping Witte while still on the floor. To make things more embarrassing, Minnesota fans booed as Witte was carried from the floor. He was hospitalized for several days, and his injuries, in the eyes of many, permanently affected his career. Taylor and Behagen were suspended for the remainder of the season by Big Ten commissioner Wayne Duke." -- Marc Szczesny-Pumarada, Melbourne, Fla.
