KU's Self reprimanded for NCAA outburst
Kansas basketball Bill Self was publicly reprimanded by the NCAA and fined an undisclosed amount Wednesday after damaging the scorer's table during an NCAA tournament game in Kansas City, Mo.
LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Kansas basketball coach Bill Self was publicly reprimanded by the NCAA and fined an undisclosed amount Wednesday after damaging the scorer's table during an NCAA tournament game in Kansas City, Mo.
Self struck the table at the Sprint Center on March 24 during a round of 32 win over North Carolina.
Ron Wellman, the chairman of the Division I men's basketball committee, said in a statement that "Coach Self's actions were out of line with the committee's expectations that championship participants act in a manner that represents the highest standards of sportsmanship."
The damage fell under NCAA guidelines that define misconduct as any "unsportsmanlike conduct, unprofessional behavior or breach of law, occurring from the time the championship field is announced through the end of the championship, that discredits the event or intercollegiate athletics."
