LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - Texas Tech coach Bob Knight has been reprimanded by the Big 12 for comments about officiating after a December 15th loss to New Mexico.
This week's public reprimand is over Knight arguing about Lobos freshman Dairese Gary's one-handed 47-footer at the halftime buzzer to give New Mexico a 44-26 lead.
Knight didn't think Gary released the shot in time.
After the game, Knight said, quote: "I thought it was a horrendous call."
The league says Knight's comment violated the Big 12's sportsmanship code, which prohibits public comments about officiating.
Knight and his spokesman couldn't immediately be reached for comment today.
