CLEVELAND, Ohio (WXYZ) -- The Mid-American Conference announced it has taken disciplinary action toward two of the officials involved in Ball State's controversial win over Eastern Michigan on Saturday.

The officials will be suspended for two conference games, and will not be considered for assignment in the 2016 MAC Tournament.

"The final play of the game was not handled appropriately by several officials and unfortunately took away from what was a highly competitive and entertaining game for the competing students and fans," MAC Commissioner Jon Steinbrecher said in a statement. "I along with our membership have higher expectations and as a result have directed our coordinator of men's basketball officials to take appropriate disciplinary action, including multiple-game suspensions."
