Huggins fined for comments following Kansas game

The Big 12 Conference released a statement moments ago announcing that West Virginia Head Coach Bob Huggins has been fined and publicly reprimanded for his postgame comments following the Mountaineers’ loss at Kansas on Saturday.

Huggins referred to the referees of the game as the “three blind mice” and questioned their consistency.  According to the release, Huggins will be fined $10,000.  The release said, “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.”
