Big 12 reprimands, fines Huggins for comments about referees

In accordance with Big 12 Conference sportsmanship policies, the Conference has issued a public reprimand and $10,000 fine of West Virginia head men’s basketball coach Bob Huggins.

“Coach Huggins’ comments following the West Virginia vs. Kansas basketball game violate the Big 12 Conference’s sportsmanship policy,” said Commissioner Bob Bowlsby. “Because this is Coach Huggins’ third such incident, a public reprimand and a fine of $10,000 is appropriate.”

Following a loss 60-53 loss at Kansas on Saturday, Huggins said on his post game interview, “I can’t control what those three blind mice running around out there do. What we would all love to see is consistency. Foul there, foul here — I understand it’s a hard job but they do get paid pretty handsomely for it. Just be consistent.”
