Texas guard Myck Kabongo, who accepted impermissible benefits and then falsified statements about his actions, had his season-long ban reduced to 23 games by an appeals committee.

The sophomore will also have to repay $475 of those benefits to a charity of his choice.

Kabongo, who averaged 9.6 points and 5.2 assists as a freshman, will be eligible to return on Feb. 13 against Iowa State.
