SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Pac-12 Conference announced they have reprimanded Utah men’s basketball coach Larry Krystkowiak for comments he made after the Utes’ loss to Oregon on Saturday.

“The Pac-12 membership has established rules that prohibit our coaches from publicly commenting about officiating,” said Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott. “We have an obligation to our members to enforce approved Conference rules. As part of our officiating program, there is a protocol in place for our coaches to provide feedback directly to the coordinator of officials.”

Krystkowiak’s comments were made in the post-game media conference. The comments were in reference to a late double-dribble call against Timmy Allen.

The Pac-12 didn’t provide any details about the reprimand other than that it happened.

Larry Krystkowiak’s Post-game Comments

The double-dribble against Allen cost Utah the game and Kyrstkowiak was very clearly upset.

“All I can say is wow,” Krystkowiak said. “You know what a team goes through and we scrapped and we played our butts off and it wasn’t error free by any means, and we make plenty of mistakes. Oregon made plenty of mistakes. Dana (Altman) and I probably made plenty of mistakes. But I think at the end of the day, we let the players determine a game and so to make up a call at the end, that didn’t even happen is mind boggling. Palming is also a rule as is double dribble and palming doesn’t seem to be called I can show you 15 clips of palming tonight. So I’m really confused and I feel really bummed for our team. I feel bad for the game that it has to has to be that way. That’s how I feel about it.”
