Big 12 reprimands Knight

Lubbock, TX (Sports Network) - The Big 12 Conference publicly reprimanded Texas Tech coach Bob Knight for comments he made about the officiating crew after a loss to New Mexico on December 15.

Knight complained vociferously about Lobos freshman Dairese Gary's half- court shot at the halftime buzzer, thinking the shot was not released on time.

The coach called the referees' decision "horrendous," a statement that violated the Big 12 Conference's Principles and Standards of Sportsmanship, prohibiting public comments about officiating.

"The Conference's Sportsmanship Policy prohibits coaches from making any public comments critical of game officials," said Big 12 Commissioner Dan Beebe. "I appreciate the cooperation by Texas Tech and Coach Knight in resolving this issue and moving forward."
