INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The NCAA publicly reprimanded Baylor coach Kim Mulkey and said she must sit out a national tournament game for criticizing the officiating following her team's upset loss to Louisville last spring.
The NCAA said Mulkey will serve the suspension the next time her team advances to the March Madness tourney. It is also withholding Baylor's team championship per diem from the regional round.
After Louisville knocked off top-seeded Baylor 82-81 in March, Mulkey said the game was far too physical and she singled out the officials.
"I thought that all three of them, if they go past this round of officiating, it will be sad for the game," she said then. "I thought the two critical calls at the end of the game were really bad."
