Verlin fights back

DENVER - Western Athletic Conference commissioner Karl Benson announced today that University of Idaho men's basketball coach Don Verlin has been reprimanded for violating the WAC's sportsmanship code.

The violation occurred when Verlin publicly criticized the game officials during his postgame press conference following the game against Nevada on February 10.

Said Benson, "Coach Verlin's comments criticizing the officials clearly violated the WAC sportsmanship code and will not be tolerated. Any further violations of the code will result in a minimum one game suspension."

Verlin apologized for his comments, "I recognize the inappropriateness of my comments and apologize to the WAC, University of Idaho and to the officiating crew for my remarks after the Nevada game."

Did the commissioner mention sanctions against the NMSU Aggies for impersonating a basketball team in the Aggie/Fresno basketball game last night?

There ought to be some serious reprimanding going on there...

I watched the Idaho, Nevada game on ESPN 360. The Idaho coach should stick to his guns as the game was given to Nevada by the officiating crew. I wasn't too thrilled with the officials in Fresno the other night either...
