BEIJING, April 6 (Xinhua) -- The organizing committee of the Chinese University Basketball Association (CUBA) Southwest Division has disqualified Chongqing Normal University player Sun Tong for two seasons after he stomped on an opponent in a recent game.

Sun trod on Li Dongxiao from Wuhan University of Technology in the third quarter of a Southwest Division group D match on Sunday. Organizers said it was an unsportsmanlike behavior in a punishment notice on Monday.

Sun was disqualified from the ongoing 23rd edition of the CUBA league, and his disqualification also applies to the next edition.

But Li, the victim in this incident, also received a one-match suspension himself, as he kicked an opponent in Monday's game against Hunan Normal University.
