WAC reprimands Utah State coach

The Western Athletic Conference has reprimanded Utah State coach
Stew Morrill for yelling at a New Mexico State player during a game
last week.

Morrill shouted at New Mexico State’s Jahmar Young after he
dived on a Utah State player while going for a loose ball in Utah
State’s win on Saturday. The WAC says Morrill’s language was
provocative and violated the league’s sportsmanship rules.

Morrill issued a statement Wednesday saying his comments were
inappropriate and he made a mistake. He says Young got a technical
foul for the situation and Morrill has been reprimanded. In his
words, “that should cover it.”

The Aggies are the No. 1 seed in the WAC tournament and play
Boise State on Thursday in Reno, Nev.
