LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) -Texas Tech coach Bob Knight was reprimanded by the Big 12 for comments he made about officiating after a loss to New Mexico earlier this month.
The reprimand, issued Monday, resulted from Knight's arguing about Lobos freshman Dairese Gary's one-handed 47-footer at the halftime buzzer in New Mexico's 80-63 victory Dec. 15. Knight didn't think Gary released the shot in time.
``I thought it was a horrendous call,'' Knight said after the game.
Knight's comment violated the Big 12's sportsmanship code, which prohibits public comments about officiating, the conference said in a statement.
Knight and his spokesman couldn't immediately be reached Wednesday.
The Big 12 reviews officials' performances, including the accuracy of judgment calls, and coaches are given the opportunity to provide input, the Big 12 said. The season-long evaluation determines whether officials get future assignments in the conference.
New Mexico's win was the second for Lobos coach Steve Alford against Knight, his coach at Indiana.
